Labour Party tells Buhari to probe Obsasanjo, others

13 August 2015, 13:14

Abuja - The  Labour Party on Wednesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to adopt a holistic approach in his anti-corruption crusade by probing former President Olusegun Obasanjo, his  deputy, Atiku Abubakar, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Bola Tinubu and former state governors., reports The Guardian.

Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, Chairman of LP, noted that all the people that have corruption charges against them must be probed.

Abdulsalam made the call in Abuja while reacting to President Buhari’s declaration that the trials of looters of the nation’s treasury would begin in the coming weeks.

Abdulsalam said the fight against corruption must not be selective and discriminatory.

He said if former Governor James Ibori of delta State is still languishing in jail in Great Britain, then governors who served and are known to have looted this country, in whatever political party, should not be spared.
