Human Rights Lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana, has said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration lacked the political will needed to fight corruption.
He said this on Friday on the topic:”Restructuring, Pros and Cons: The place of the Nigerian youth” at the 78th International Students Day organised by the Ogun state government in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Falana noted that the fight against corruption embarked upon by the Buhari government remained a mere scratch on the surface.
He said, “I am sure you are following the anti- corruption war being prosecuted by Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, men and women are involved.
“Christians and Muslims are involved and those who believe in traditional religions are involved. One person has been charged for collecting N4.7bn from former President Goodluck Jonathan for spiritual consultation.
“The point I am making is that if our looters are not divided on the table of ethnicity nothing will happen. The government still lacks the political will, the war now is just a tip of the real iceberg, there are still money to be recovered.”
The human rights lawyer also faulted the Senate for approving $5.5bn loan request put forward by the executive.
Falana who lamented the state and standard of education in the South-West, argued that the zone seemed to have lost its place to other zones.
