The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, accused former President Goodluck Jonathan of having institutionalized corruption during his administration, stressing that the administration won gold in corruption.He said these at the book presentation, “Making Steady, Sustainable Progressive for Nigeria’s Peace and Prosperity: A mid-term scorecard on the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration”, held at the State House Conference Center, Abuja.
According to Tinubu, so much money grew feet and ran faster than Jamaican runner, Usani Bolt, adding that the money that should have been spent on development was squandered in ways that could cause the devil to blush. The prior government used the public treasury as a private hedge fund or a charity that limited its giving only to themselves.
“One minister and her rogues’ gallery picked the pocket of this nation for billions of dollars. While poor at governance, these people could give a master thief lessons in the sleight of hand. In governance, they earned a red card but in corruption, they won the gold medal.
