Corruption now official in Buhari’s government – ASUU


…condemns fuel scarcity at yuletide

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on Wednesday said the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government anti-corruption war has been compromised.

The union also noted that corruption has become endemic in the present administration because ‘government only makes noise rather than fight the scourge’.

The chairman of the union Dr Deji Omole said this while addressing newsmen in Ibadan.

Omole described as shameful the fact that Nigeria under the President Mohammadu Buhari cannot refine enough fuel for domestic consumption.

According to Dr Omole, nearly 75percent of Nigeria-trained doctors have left the country while those at home were planning to leave owing to the poor working conditions and bad welfare schemes.

“That we cannot refine oil for local consumption let alone for export is a shame. This is still happening because those leading us do not believe in Nigeria. It is unfortunate that those leading this country run abroad for health, education and even save stolen funds abroad. They only preside over a country they do not believe in. The government of Buhari has continued to slide down the budget allocation to education. In Nigeria now, corruption is official because the government only makes noise rather than fight the scourge.”
