A statement by Presidential Spokesman Garba Shehu described the former President’s position as absolutely untrue, saying the facts on the ground today run contrary to the his views on corruption.
According to the statement President Muhammadu Buhari, in pursuit of the war against corruption, has set a number of local and international records, one of which is to call judicial officers in Nigeria to account, noting that he is the first to set such a record.
Shehu says this is the first time a ruling party is convicting high profile citizens including former governors, who are members of same party, a feat, he believes has earned President Buhari international recognition as manifested by the selection of the President by the African Union as the Anti-Corruption Champion of the continent.
The Presidential media aide who said the former President and his party have nothing to say about achievements, raised questions about what the PDP achieved for 16 years in the areas jobs creation,power, rail, seaports, airports and internal security for sixteen years it was in power.
