Arewa Peace Coalition (APC) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of double standards in the anti-corruption war, sayingÂ the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Babachir Lawal, should have been handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), rather than an administrative panel for investigation.
The APC added that as Buhariâ€™s kinsmen, its hope in the anti-corruption war of the president was gradually fading away.
It noted that itÂ wishesÂ toÂ bring to the presidentâ€™s attention a critical observation which it considers as a renege on his promise in fighting corruption that, â€˜there will be no sacred cowsâ€™.
The group, in an open letter to the president titled: â€˜A tale of two anti-corruption war,â€™ and signed by Abdulkadir Mohammed, said it was worried about the way the anti-corruption war was being fought by the government.
According to the group, â€œThe suspended SGF should have been handed over to the EFCC as the federal government did to the personal physician of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Fiberesima, who is being accused of fraud worth 285million.â€
