Buhari is being pressurized to stop anti-graft war - Osinbajo

05 February 2016, 06:54

Abuja - Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari is being put under immense pressure to put a stop to his anti-corruption campaign, Punch reports.

According to a statement released by Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande,  Osinbajo disclosed that the pressure on Buhari mainly stemmed from the country's elite, although no names were mentioned.

Speaking at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Osinbajo added that the sentiment to slow down the anti-graft war cut across all tribes and religions throughout Nigeria.

The Vice-President said that those who share the sentiment feel that corruption is not a "big deal" and that looters should merely be asked to return stolen monies to the treasury.

Osinbajo has since assured Nigerians that despite the undue influence coming from the elite, Buhari's administration plans to steer ahead with the war against corruption.

He also commended those who believe in the fight, saying that the focus of the campaign will remain focused of the masses that voted the current administration into power.
