More appears to come in President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have been urged to bravely and courageously arrest all looters.
The President’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie gave the nudge on Wednesday while reacting to an earlier claim made by the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, that the president was witch-hunting opposition.
HURIWA had said that Buhari was using the EFCC to witch-hunt prominent members of the opposition.
The group also condemned Buhari for using security agencies and the Ministry of Federal Capital Territory to demolish a section of African Independent Television, AIT, building in Abuja.
Recalling that AIT is owned by Chief Raymond Dokpesi, a known chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, HURIWA warned that Nigeria would be worse off if Buhari was allowed to run his purported tyrannical government, urging Nigerians to resist all forms of tyranny by the Buhari government.
However, it a swift reaction, Onochie described HURIWA’s claim as blackmail.
On her verified tweet page, Onochie charged EFCC to bravely and courageously arrest looters.
“The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has claimed that Pres. @MBuhari was using security agencies, especially EFCC, to witch-hunt members of the opposition.
“Me: This is nothing short of blackmail. @officialEFCC must BRAVELY and COURAGEOUSLY Arrest all looters”, she wrote.
