A British newspaper this morning questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption credentials.

The Mail Online said President Buhari who is typecast as the People’s President may be waging a war against corruption but that his critics have described the war as a witch hunt.

The paper said Buhari sends his daughter to a £26,000-a-year English school and that in April the opposition PDP party unearthed a ticket stub showing Hanan, 16, had flown first-class from London to Nigeria, despite her father’s ban on officials using premium travel.

The report quoted a Nigerian newspaper alleging Buhari had spent £150,000 on educating his daughter Zahra, a Surrey University student.

The paper also reported Buhari’s failure to give a full account of his worth, and that even his partial admission included more than £1million in the bank, five houses and two plots of land.

The publication comes 72 hours before President Buhari’s scheduled arrival in London for a world anti-corruption summit, to be hosted by UK’s prime minister, David Cameron. In his company, will be the attorney-general, Abubakar Malami and EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu.

But to the Mail Online, “The presence of Nigeria’s president at David Cameron’s anti-corruption summit this week may surprise many in his nation – which receives vast amounts of UK aid.

“Self-proclaimed ‘People’s President’ Muhammadu Buhari began a war on corruption after taking power last year, but critics allege it is a political witch-hunt.

“The Government is giving nearly £250million in the coming year to oil-rich Nigeria.

“Nigeria has the highest-paid government officials in the world but is one of the largest beneficiaries of UK foreign aid.

I think the word witch hunt is used to describe the selective targeting of opposition politicians when there are many in the government's corner with more than skeletons in their closet.

This is also a technique used by all former Nigerian governments hence the skepticism.

I support the British news paper that Apc government is witch hunting the former ruling party, from the look of things it's only members of pdp that's corrupt according to efcc body language.
What about Governor El rufai that's alleged to have declared 90 houses, did he acquired all in a legitimate means? (It's God and El rufai conscience has the answer.) Efcc should investigate the findings of a panel of enguirry in River State which alleged that Ameachi awarded billions of naira contract to one company on several occasions in the same address yet no trace of such firm, is the act not grevious enough?. I can go on and on ..............
Efcc should make the anticorruption crusade an all encompass fight so that any Nigerian both Apc or Pdp or any individual who convert our wealth to personal wealth should face the wraught of the law but not selective trials as being experience in this regime presently.
