Corruption: ‘Probe Jonathan’s Predecessors, Governors, LG Bosses, Others’

The National President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention, Reverend Samson Ayokunle, has observed that the fight against corruption of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has to be more embracing by going beyond the last administration of Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

He said at a press conference in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on the state of the nation: “Corruption at the local and state government levels ought to be probed as well in order for justice to be done.”

Ayokunle, who is the Vice President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), lauded Buhari’s government for waging a relentless war against corruption which, he said, had retarded the growth of the nation as national resources that were expected to be expended on the development of Nigeria had been embezzled, mismanaged and/or misappropriated at the local, state and Federal government levels.

He continued, “this act was perpetrated by the political leaders and the civil servants. However, as others have observed before, this fight against corruption has to be more embracing beyond the last administration in the country.”
