President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to further look inward towards ensuring that adequate sanctions are meted out on looters of the nation’s treasury so as to serve as deterrence to intending looters.
The Youths’ Promoter Vanguard, YPV, in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Adebayo Otunola Awoniyi, in Ilorin yesterday expressed confidence in President Buhari’s anti-corruption crusade in a bid to enhance peoples’ oriented programmes.
He also disclosed that tackling corruption in our dear nation is as important as striving towards the survival of the souls of over 170 million citizens of the country whose major desire is nation-building, massive youth employment, economic recovery among others.
According to him, “Corruption is not only criminal but it is also an evil force that deserves mass destruction by a corrupt free leadership in order to achieve the numerous campaign promises, which further necessitated the need for change of government during the last general elections.
“I therefore urge Nigerians, irrespective of their ethnic, religious and political affiliation to respect and support Mr. President ‘s anti corruption strides in order to build a virile economy in the interest of peace, progress and development of the country. No looter of our wealth should be spared because their devilish act has further dashed the hopes of Nigerian youths.
“Nigeria as a country is greater than any individual or group and it is my plea that no one should do anything to rock the boat of peace in the country thereby drawing us back to the dark days.”
The group however sought for synergy between the presidency and the National Assembly as part of move towards achieving the much desired change expected by Nigerians.
While commending the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, ( APC), Comrade Awoniyi also lauded former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for his painstaking efforts towards the victory of the party in the 2015 general elections.
