Senator Joseph Waku, former Chairman, Senate Committee on Water Resources, urges President Muhammadu Buhari to either probe former President Olusegun Obasanjo or lose the 2019 election.
He made the statement in a side-interview with press at the ongoing Annual General Assembly of the Arewa Consultative Forum, Tuesday, August 23, in Kaduna.
Senator Waku declared Buhari couldn’t be fighting the war against corruption when the father of corruption, Olusegun Obasanjo was roaming freely.
He premonitioned the ruling party would surely lose the 2019 general election because it was Buhari’s perceived honesty that made APC politicians support him in the first place. Without that, they would have lost the 2015 election.
The APC chieftain opined, “Look, I am 70 years old now and have been in this game for more than 50 years.”
“Therefore, there is no way I can just look at some totality of what people are saying about corruption and believe it as it has been reported to me. If I have an investigating mechanism, I know that this accusation is real obviously.”
“I have access to authority. I have access to Mr. President. I told Mr. President that this corruption probe of past regimes, if you don’t probe Obasanjo, then you haven’t done anything yet. Corruption in Nigeria was introduced by Obasanjo.” Waku concluded.
