Nigeria – Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday praised the new administration’s clampdown on corruption.
According to him, the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration squandered the nation’s resources but that things had changed positively since the coming of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“For the first time, big people are being asked to account, in the past we only hear of governors, local government people, commissioners but this time we are seeing Minister of Finance confessing like a witch craft how they took money and even co-opt their children so they didn’t just share money for the party they shared for their families.
“When a Minister pays money into her own personal account, we have seen national security being redefined to meet the security of a political party to secure the party in office rather than secure the nation even in the face of a devastating insurgency”, the governor stated.
Oshiomhole spoke while receiving over 5,000 members of the PDP in the three senatorial districts of the state into the APC.
The defectors include the immediate past Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Power, Patrick Ikhariale; Abbas Braimah; and Bisi Idaomi.
