Former President Muhammadu Buhari has boasted that his administration saved Nigeria from corruption.
Buhari said his administration saved Nigeria from corrupt undertones planted to expose Nigeria’s economy to collapse.
He disclosed this in a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, in response to the allegations raised against him by former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adokie, over Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID), Paris Club, and the Ajaokuta steel company.
The former president said the cases identified by Adokie originated from an administration that the former Attorney General was part of.
Buhari stressed that his administration inherited the contract and incidental judgement in the P&ID.
The statement reads partly: “The logical conclusion any reasonable person can draw on P&ID, Paris Club, and Ajaokuta is that President Buhari came on a rescue mission and effectively saved Nigeria from corrupt undertones that were planted to expose its economy to imminent collapse. The success of the Buhari administration in the fight against corruption is unprecedented.”
