Former Kano state Governor, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau has commended the President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti graft war, saying that “it is what most Nigerians have been yearning for.”
Shekau said “Anyone who acquired wealth through illegal or fraudulent means should be investigated and brought to justice.”
He noted that it takes a true and honest individual to right track a nation like Nigeria against corruption, pointing out that” we will join hands provided it is done with fairness.”
The one time Minister of Education and first to set a record of two terms of 4 years as governor in Kano state said the present APC led government under President Buhari should not jettison the baseline of due process and avoid selective justice in its anti corruption fight.
“Our system needs to be sanitised for prosperity. But meting injustice to an unjust person amounts to no justice.”
On the crisis rocking the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to which he owes allegiance, the former governor said it was a normal political hurdle that would come to pass, adding that “we are re-strategising and we will sail out of the perceived woods.
“We are only going through political reformation to come up with acceptable leadership with people oriented agenda”, Shekarau explained.
