The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to expose terrorism financiers and oil thieves across the country.
According to Obi, this is to ensure there were no ‘sacred cows’ in the fight against terrorism, anti-corruption and economic sabotage across the country.
The former Anambra State governor made the call on his Twitter page on Wednesday.
He wrote, “I am struck and intrigued by the news report linking “highly placed” Nigerians to oil theft. Same has been the case with financing insurgency and Boko Haram. When will FGN summon the political will to publicly name such persons?
“In the National Interest, there should be no sacred cows – PO”
The federal government says the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit uncovered 96 financiers of terrorism as well as the 424 associates and supporters of the financiers.
