National Leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has scolded former President Goodluck Jonathan for the level of corruption he said was witnessed under his administration.

Speaking at the public presentation of “Making Steady, Sustainable  Progress for Nigeria’s Peace and Prosperity,” a book on President Muhammadu Buhari’s midterm scorecard in Abuja on Thursday, he pointed out that Buhari had corrected the wrongs inflicted on the country by the previous administration.
He accused the Jonathan administration of using the public treasury as a private hedge fund or a charity that limited its giving only to themselves.
The former Lagos state governor said: “So much money grew feet and ran away faster than Usain Bolt ever could. That which could have been spent on national development was squandered in ways that would cause the devil to blush.
“One minister and her rogues’ gallery picked the pocket of this nation for billions of dollars. While poor at governance, these people could give a master thief lessons in the sleight of hand.  In governance, they earned a red card but in the corruption, they won the gold medal.
“It was not that our institutions had become infected by corruption. Corruption had become institutionalized.”
Even though he praised Buhari for his effort to rid the country of corruption, he said the war is not yet won.

According to him, “president Buhari has set an axe to the root of this dangerous tree.  I would be lying if I said the war against large-scale corruption has been won.
“It has not.  It will take time and countless swings of the axe to fall such a deeply-rooted tree. But try we must. This is what the President is doing.
“Gone are the times when a minister can pilfer billions of dollars as easy as plucking a piece of candy from the table.”
Tinubu regretted that even though the Buhari administration is on the right course, there are still too many people that are poor in the country.
He, therefore, urged the president to do more.
Tinubu said: “While each change may not be dramatic in itself, the cumulative effects of these reforms make for a stronger nation and a future assured.
“Yet, I lay caution to those people whose words and actions would counsel complacency.
“True, much good has been done by this government to ignore. However, too many of our people remain too poor and put-out to ignore as well.
