An APC leader in Osun State, Amitolu Shitu, has said that President Muhammmadu Buhari has failed in his campaign against corruption.
Shittu asked the President to sack suspended Secretary General, Babachir Lawal and the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, Usman Yusuf.
Lawal, Yusuf and others have allegations of corruption levelled against them.
Shitu, who is also the coordinator of DeRaufs – a pro- Governor Rauf Aregbesola group – said the President had failed many Nigerians, who voted for him to rid the nation of corruption.
He told Punch, “President Muhammadu Buhari was voted in because of his stance on corruption.
“He was seen as a man of integrity and a leader, who would fight corruption, which has prevented Nigeria and Nigerians from developing.
“Unfortunately, he has failed in his anti-corruption war. He failed, not because he is stealing money, but because he allowed corrupt politicians around him to hijack governance from him and run the affairs of the nation with impunity.
“It is not enough for the President to suspend the SGF and the NHIS boss, I believe he should sack them. And not only these two officials, there are others who were accused of corruption. Nothing has been done against them.
“Buhari’s campaign against corruption has failed and the rate of corruption now is so alarming.”
