“We Cannot Fight Corruption In Nigeria The Way Buhari Is Fighting It And Get Results,” – Kwara Speaker, Ali Ahmad
The Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Dr. Ali Ahmad, has criticized the Buhari government for releasing ‘looters list’.
Ahmad spoke in an interview with journalists in Ilorin, the state capital.
“To me, the expected looters’ list is an opposition list. I didn’t even read the other one and this one that is coming, I won’t read it. I know the names of those likely to be there, so I won’t waste my time reading it.
“I will rather invest my time in things that are resourceful and important. Honestly, preparing the looters’ list shows that the minister doesn’t have a serious work to do.
“You cannot fight corruption in Nigeria the way APC and the Federal Government are fighting it and get good results. First, our judicial system is very slow.
“What should be done is to change the perspectives of Nigerians about corruption and then strengthen the states and national assembly to do it”, Sun quoted him as saying.
On the President’s declaration to re-contest in 2019 presidential election, Ahmad said that Buhari had the constitutional right to contest for a second term.
“As a Nigerian and a politician, I want my party to win the presidential election,” he stated.
The Speaker also said that he would be interested in becoming the next governor of Kwara State if allowed by the stakeholders.
“If the people in authority believe that I’m capable, I will be interested in becoming Kwara State Governor in 2019,” Ahmad said.
