You Are Frustrating Buhari’s Anti-Corruption War, Group Tells NASS


Over 20 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and President Muhammadu Buhari supporters have threatened to occupy the National Assembly next week, accusing the lawmakers of frustrating the anti-corruption efforts of the present administration.

Daily Trust reports that while addressing a rally Wednesday March 23 in Abuja, attended by various organisations, the president of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Retson Tedheke, who spoke on behalf of the others, accused the National Assembly of reversing the gains of the Change Agenda of President Buhari.

“Instead of keying into the anti-corruption war of the president, the leadership of National Assembly is bent on scuttling it.

“We demand the confirmation of the acting chairman of the EFCC Ibrahim Magu, three nominees for the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and those whose appointments were rejected on frivolous allegations,” he said.
