#SoundOff: The Ill-logic of Buhari’s Restriction In Fighting Corruption

Muhammadu Buhari has contested for President thrice before he won.

The first time he ran against Obasanjo. The second time it was against Yar Adua, and the third time against Jonathan.

Each time he ran, he did so on the platform of anti-corruption. He accused each of his opponents and previous government of corruption every time.

So, Buhari finally gets elected the fourth time and restricts a probe on corruption to President Goodluck Jonathan who conceded to him and has singly done more to curb corruption than any Nigerian leader living or dead.

Jonathan is being picked on simply because of where he comes from and stands in Buhari’s discriminatory contributory equation in governance.

Who will educate Buhari on the dangers of his selective actions?
