Buhari’s Anti-Corruption War is ‘Lopsided And Selective’ – Cleric

The Bishop of Kaduna Arch Diocese, Most Reverend Timothy Yahaya, on Sunday berated the anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking during a service to commemorate the resurrection of Christ, the cleric said the fight against corruption has been lopsided, selective and only targeted at the members of the opposition party.

He also lamented the alleged high impunity and abuse of human rights in course of the fight.

He, however, suggested that, the way to go about the fight is not to hound a selected few from one political party or region, but to ensure that all those found guilty of looting public funds are brought to justice irrespective of their party, religion or ethnic affiliations.

The Bishop blamed the high rate of poverty and unemployment in the country to corrupt practices by those in leadership positions and called on the Federal and State Governments to tackle unemployment and poverty to improve the lives of the citizens.

While preaching to worshipers, who joined in the commemoration of the resurrection of Christ, the Bishop decried evil practices of looting of public funds, bad governance and high rate of poverty in the country.

The Bishop asked political leaders to give the citizens hope instead of disappointment and to use the Easter celebrations to share, love and care to the masses just as Jesus did.

The Easter Church service was marked with praise and worship as worshipers thanked God for keeping them alive to witness the resurrection of Christ who died to save mankind.
