The Presidential Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina on Friday said the anti-corruption war of the present administration is a collective effort of every member of the cabinet, contrary to the believe that it is just a “one man affair”.
Adesina made this disclosure while featuring on TVC News’ public affairs programme, “This Morning. He stressed that there are no sacred cows in Buhari’s cabinet.
The anti-corruption war of the Buhari administration, according to his critics is a one man battle that is only being fought the by president himself.
But reacting to this and some other issues, Adesina disclosed that there is no single member of Buhari’s cabinet that is antithetical to the success of the anti-graft war.
” Each time I read about this (criticisms against the anti-graft war), my reaction has always been that those criticing the administration are short of facts and being economical with the truth. I can tell you categorically that there is no “sacred cow or untouchables” as they may call them in Buhari’s cabinet.
“Buhari is a man of his words, a man with integrity who will not do or allow anything that will tarnish his hard earned integrity. Remember he once told the anti-graft chief to probe his children if they are corrupt, so can such a man now shield any of his cabinet members from investigation.
“So, there’s no scared cow in Buhari’s cabinet,” Adesina stated.
Recall that the president recently turned down the resolution of the Senate demanding the sack sack of the Secretary to the Government of the federation, Babachir Lawal for allegedly using his office to award contract to his company.
