The war against corruption in Nigeria no doubt dates to a very long time but the emergence of President Muhammadu Buhari according to many activists has added new impetus to the fight against the societal ill. To compliment government’s effort a coalition of anti-corruption groups Tuesday staged a peaceful rally in Abuja in support of the Federal Government’s drive to rid the country of corrupt practices.
They all gather here in their numbers marching along the street of the Nation’s Federal Capital Territory. With different placards bearing inscriptions such as Anti-corruption, no more sacred cows. Kill corruption before corruption kills Nigeria, the activists marched to EFCC National Headquarters.
At the anti-craft agency’s office, they were warmly received by the officials who disclosed that monies have been recovered from corrupt Nigerians but would not reveal the figure for now. President Buhari’s effort to rid the nation of corruption has been criticized in some quarters for tilting towards perceived opposition parties. But members of this group are convinced that the President is right on his anti-corruption drive and deserves support.
