Buhari only deceived Nigerians with the slogan of fight against Boko Haram, Corruption to win 2015 election, says Junaid Mohammed

Dr. Junaid Mohammed, an elder statesman has slammed the President Buhari’s led administration, saying that corruption, indiscipline is breeding hunger and poverty in the system now than ever.

Mohammed, who is a Second Republic legislator, stated this while fielding questions from newsmen in Abuja yesterday. He added that President Buhari’s promise to tackle insurgency and totally defeat Boko Haram in the North East was a campaign deceit.

According to him, “The way you assess a politician…take away all the pretenses of integrity or achievements, his banner has nothing. It is nothing but void. Let me tell you; you assess a politician by what he says he would do. Buhari promised to deal and finish off Boko Haram. They are very much alive.”

“Now, I want to assure you that I cannot say that within the last three years my lot has been bettered. Things have been worse, poverty has been a lot more and by the evaluation of the United Nation Development Programme, World Bank and IMF, poverty has become a lot more since Buhari became president and indiscipline has become a lot worse.”

“The corruption he claimed to pay lip service to is now much higher and is greater in the presidency where he resides and it is among his cronies, his friends and relations. We have wonder boys who are multi-billionaires, who have houses all over the country and outside the country. So, if that is what you call a better Nigeria then good luck to you because to me, I knew what my standard was and what it is now as I am talking to you.”

He said that Nigeria is a lot worse, less secured and a lot more corrupt, stressing “The military itself in the fight against corruption has become so compromised.”

He also criticised the extension of the tenure of the service chiefs, saying, “He has now deliberately, whimsically and illegally extended the tenure of the top Generals because some of them are his friends in whatever they are doing. And we have a situation whereby three generations of Nigerian military Generals, who are trained with huge amount of money either to take over the command of what is happening in the North-East are not given the opportunity because their seniors are busy staying and most of them are redundant, irresponsible and corrupt.”

He said that postings are now determined by who you know in the military hierarchy and are determined by how much you are willing to pay.

He alleged that the military is now involved in the same crime they are drafted to fight, pointing out that; “A lot of crimes we accuse Boko Haram of apply to the Nigerian Armed Forces. They go to villages and take over farms and fish farms. Some of the fish are transported to the South and some to Kano and they make money out of it. So, the fight against corruption has been politicised and commercialised and it is now in the interest of these top Generals to continue with this fight indefinitely because they are making money out of it.” He further alleged.
