The Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to remain resolute in his administration’s fight against corruption.
This is contained in statement issued by the Executive Director of the centre, Dr Abdullahi Omaki, on Sunday in Abuja.
The statement said that the call became necessary following the revelations on “institutional rots’’ that took place under the immediate past administration in the country.
“Savannah Centre believes that the fight against corruption should remain unrelenting until the institutions of state are re-positioned to perform according to the laws establishing them,’’ it said.
According to the centre, the allocation of national resources for political interest at the expense of huge loss of lives and property is callous.
It appealed to members of the National Assembly and other well-meaning Nigerians to support the fight against corruption, adding that the fight should be extended to the states and local governments.
“State governments, state Houses of Assembly and local governments should not be immune from critical evaluation, in the interest of justice in our nation,“ the statement stressed.
It urged state governments to embark on projects that would benefit their people.
It said, “provision of rural electricity, portable drinking water, health care centres and roads are much more impactful than the construction of airports embarked by several state governments’’. (NAN)
