Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has accused President Buhari of corruption and tampering with the operations of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC.
In the interview with Premium Times, Obasanjo accused of President Buhari of corruption and tampering with the operations of ICPC and EFCC who are no longer independent under his government.
The 82-year-old former President said, “I set up two institutions. I came with two laws that were not there before, to fight corruption.
And those who claim they are fighting corruption today have not brought in anything different.
If anything, they have corrupted those two institutions. And the institutions were open and independent.
I never, never, as president had to say to either the head of ICPC or EFCC, ‘Oh, chase this person.”
