Anti graft war: Why corruption has won, and 10 notable failures of Buhari – Dr. Perry Brimah

TERRORISM /CRIME
In Over Two Years Buhari Hasn't Locked Up A Single Corrupt Cabal EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu lamented last Wednesday that Nigeria was losing the war on corruption. It was an honest deposition. Over two years after being sworn in, despite much talk and relentless over pouring of public support and encouragement, the Buhari-Osinbajo government has failed to lock up a single corrupt politician or their businessmen cronies. Not one. The closest Buhari came to locking someone up was with former Adamawa state governor Ngilari, but he was soon acquitted of all charges. They say corruption is fighting back.

TERRORISM /CRIME
Reuben Abati, a former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has said that the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, may well inflict more damages on the country than Boko Haram insurgents. According to Reuben Abati also blamed the Federal Government for arresting him when he came to Nigeria, saying that Nnamdi Kanu was just having talks on the internet but became larger than life when he was arrested. In an article, “The Nnamdi Kanu Phenomenal,” the former media aide noted the emergence of the IPOB leader is a product of years of denial which could potentially throw the country into turmoil. “Fifty years after the outbreak of the civil war, we now have a man called Nnamdi Kanu.

TERRORISM /CRIME
The Nobel Prize winner, Professor Wole Soyinka has said that the victory of Donald Trump in the United State’s November 8 presidential election could lead to the withdrawal of support in Nigeria’s fight against the Boko Haram insurgents. Soyinka told Newsweek that Trump’s “bunker mentality” could see the American government take back their help for counter-terrorism operations in West Africa.
