Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has said that the President Muhammadu Buhari anti-graft war is not one-sided as it is perceived by Nigerians.
Kalu said those being prosecuted for corruption are persons on whose hands the finances of the country was entrusted in the last administration, stressing that this administration have not done wrongly in demanding how the money was used.
He spoke to reporters during a visit to former military President, Ibrahim Babangida, at his Uphill residence in Minna, Niger State, where he noted that people are biased in their reasoning if they think the anti-corruption war is selective.
“I do not believe that the anti-corruption war of President Buhari is selective. Someone may look at it in perspective that it is selective because it is the people in the previous government that are involved and this is because they are the people that handled the money during that period.”
He, however, called on the President to pay more attention to the nation’s economy.
He added, “I support President Buhari in the fight against corruption but as we are fighting corruption, we should also look at the industrial base of the country.
“No country can survive with only politics. The economy is very important to the nation.”
