George Okoh In Makurdi
Former Minister of Interior, Chief Abba Moro, has cautioned against the selective prosecution of opposition politicians in the country even as he stated that he was in support of the fight against corruption.
Moro also expressed dissatisfaction on the fight against corruption that is targeted to just a particular segment, describing it as unfair and in just.
Moro made his feelings known while fielding questions from Newsmen at the graduation of SEV-AV Foundation a program initiated and founded by the former Benue First lady Dooshima Yemisi Suswam in Makurdi.
He explained that the purpose for which corruption is to be tackled is to bring development and restore dignity into the administrative system of the country.
â€œI am in support of the fight against corruption but it should not be targeted only on one segment, if Suswam is being prosecuted because his administration was indicted by Justice Kpojime report, Amaechi should be prosecuted because he was indicted by an enquiry report too.â€
â€œWhy leave Amaechi on the road side and give him appointment just because he is in the ruling camp? I think something is wrong somewhere and for the country to succeed in the fight against corruption it must be holistic.â€
The former minister described the just-concluded PDP convention as monumental, most transparent ever conducted in the country since the return of democracy in the country.
