#LawalGate: Buhari’s Credibility at Stake Over Failure to Implement Osinbajo’s Report – Sani
The failure to implement the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s committee report on the internally displaced persons’ camps, may affect the chances of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
The Guardian reports that the Senator representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, gave this warning.
According to him, the failure of President Muhammadu Buhari to implement the report may see the party not surviving the electoral heat. Sani, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Humanitarian Crisis in the Northeast, also warned against delaying the report on the suspended Secretary to the Federal Government, Babachir Lawal.
He said any further delay in making the reports public would tarnish Buhari’s long-built reputation and credibility.The senator urged the fight against corruption not to be limited to the opposition parties alone, but also to the ruling APC, to prove to Nigerians that it is not one-sided.
Sani, who handed over a newly purchased skills acquisition centre to the leadership of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) at Sabon-Tasha, Kaduna, said he was worried about these developments.
“I hope the reports have not been eaten by rodents and the soft copy infected by virus. But if there is nothing of such, Mr. President must take a serious action on them. And if he doesn’t, then the proverbial insecticide and deodorant would simply be applied.
“If we are serious about fighting corruption, it should be total. The president should know that his credibility is hanging until this issue is addressed and very well too. There should be no hidden place, or immunity for anybody.
“The whole Nigeria is waiting for him to act. He should not allow his love, passion and soft-heartedness for people he holds closely, to deny him his good name. He should make a move to either redeem his image or that of the people involved,” he said.
The senator said if the ruling APC has had the capacity to jail people in the opposition, it should also do the same to indicted members in the APC. He stressed that it is only then that the party could show that it means well for all Nigerians.
