A former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that corrupt people might be winning the President Buhari-led anti-corruption war. He noted that Nigerians must collectively fight the war against corruption because the crooks have been winning the battle. The Cable, reports.

The former anti-corruption agency boss raised this alarm while speaking while speaking to journalists at the 12th annual public symposium organized by the Abuja chapter of Muslim Media Practitioners of Nigeria (MMPN) made the remark.

Ribadu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said though the anti-graft war is going on “very well,” at the moment, it could still be improved upon.

“What is going on today is reinvigoration, a change that put corruption as number one priority of government. I want to salute those who are responsible for that. I totally agree,” he said.

“And I appeal to all Nigerians to please, for God’s sake, let’s think about our country, let’s make our own people the winner even if it means for once. The crooks have been winning. Those who are stealing our own money have been winning. Let’s turn it around and make Nigerians winner.

“It’s going on very well. It can be done better. But you also know and agree that things have changed. If you know the volume or the amount of money that we say today we have recovered, money stolen from individual and people, the money is with Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), that tells you the story of what is going on today. We can do better.

Ribadu urged the media to champion the anti-corruption message and always stand for what is right.
