Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has taken a swipe at the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying he’s not fit to lead the onslaught on corruption in Nigeria.
This was after Atikeu vowed to tackle the plague which is bedeviling the country. He said, “I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before.”
However, in a peace meeting with aggrieved aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Marina, Ambode advised Nigerians not to allow themselves to be led back to what existed in the 16 yearS rule of the PDP.
He said “You see, everybody is very clear about what is going on. In any environment, when you put up a crusade that you want to fight corruption, it’s very clear that corruption will always fight back. The fundamental reform about the way we do things is the underbelly for this anti-corruption drive.
“The way we do things in this country, they are not the right ways that can give us prosperity and President Buhari decided, on his own, that he would champion this crusade irrespective of how corruption will fight back.
“But again, when you have had 16 years of corruption and we’ve just only had three and a half years of reversing it, the way they are fighting back is trying to take government from him so that we can go back to our old ways of putting this country in penury, that is the crux of this election.”
