Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the
ongoing anti-graft war by President Muhammadu Buhari is not hindering
The National Auditor of the party, Chief George Moghalu, made this known to the media in Abuja on Wednesday.
Moghalu said that other aspects of governance were being addressed.
He also dismissed insinuations in some quarters that the fight against
corruption may affect the fortunes of APC in future elections.
According to him, the party will not spend its tenure fighting corruption.
"I want to disagree with such insinuations. We are not going to spend
the four years in fighting corruption. As you know, corruption is being
fought and it is fighting back."
"In the same vein, other aspects of governance are being addressed;
governance has not stopped in any sector because Mr President and his
government are confronting corruption frontally."
"Governance is running side by side with the fight against corruption."

"Infrastructure is being addressed, issues of the power sector is being
addressed, agriculture, science and technology are being addressed
alongside fighting corruption, because it is one of the cardinal
promises made by the government during the campaign," said the party
On the party's eight-month reign, Moghalu blamed the slow speed of the
Buhari administration on the decay inherited from the past government.
"We are very much on course. You see, when we talk about these eight
months, we must also consider the level of decay, the level of rot that
the APC government is confronted with."
"It will be most unfair for anybody to expect that the rot and damage
to the economy, to the Nigerian state, to infrastructure and everything
will be repaired in eight months."
"It is not fair to the government. We all know from what we are seeing and hearing, the quantum of damage is unimaginable."
"So, we need to give the government all the support, encourage
government, pray for the leaders so that they will continue in the part
they are following."
"If you look at it, there is a methodical commitment to actually set
objective and that objective which I know is to implement the APC
manifesto which is well written and a collection of the reaction and
expectations of the people."
"And once that is implemented, I guarantee you that Nigeria will get back on course."
He appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the government and assured
that soon, they would have no choice than to praise the Buhari-led
Moghalu said: "My appeal is that we should be patient. We are almost there, it can't be worse."
"Let us be a little bit patient, support government in prayer and by any means we can, so that government can remain on course."
"I am confident that with what has happened and the target they have
set for themselves, I am certain that we will soon get to our
