President Muhammadu Buhari’s ascension to power will mark two years on May 29, 2017.

The political campaign f Mr. Buhari has on the crest of fighting corruption, insecurity and revamping the economy, has made him stepped on toes majorly along the opposition lines.


Here are Big- men in the political space that President Buhari has torchlight his anti graft crusade on as compiled by Dailytrust newspaper:

1. Former governor of Adamawa State, James Bala Ngilari

The anti-graft crusade of President Muhammadu Buhari scored a major goal in March, this year when Mr. Ngilari was surreptitiously investigated, taken to court where he was found guilty and sentenced for five years by a Federal High Court.

The prosecution had proved beyond reasonable doubt that Ngilari violated the Public Procurement Act of the state by awarding contracts for the procurement of 25 vehicles for his commissioners at the cost of N167 million without following due process.

2. Ex- Sule Gov Lamido

The former governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Sule Lamido was earlier this week remanded at the Kiyawa Prison over alleged “inciting statements” ahead of local government elections in Jigawa.

In July, 2015, the former Jigawa governor and his two sons, Aminu and Mustapha, were before a federal high court, for allegedly receiving N1.35 billion kickback from a government contractor. They were remanded in prison custody but later granted bail.

Like many other politicians, Lamido’s handlers attributed his arrests to his rising profile. Around this time in 2016, the former Jigawa State governor said he will vie for the presidency in 2019. “If my party (PDP) finds me worthy of the party’s presidential ticket to serve Nigeria, I will thank God and oblige,” he said.

Nnamdi Kanu happenes to be the only high profile man arrested not as a thief. Others are misappropriators of public project funds.

Well, their more big men thieves dinning and wining with him (buhari). And he's aware of them. And he will not arrest them. Do you know why?
It's simply because buhari came back for revenge.
