Ribadu – ‘Give Buhari’s anti- corruption war a chance to succeed,’ Ex- EFCC Chairman says

Ribadu made the comment on Wednesday,
July 20, 2016, during an event organized by
the Presidential Advisory Committee on
Corruption in Abuja, Vanguard reports.
“I want to appeal to Nigerians to give the
current government’s fight against corruption a
chance and shun the undue politicisation of
issues. There is no other way to prosecute
anti-corruption than what we are witnessing
presently,” he said.
“The effort has yielded appreciable result
going by the unprecedented recoveries and
the high profile cases being handled. The
government and those in charge of the process
deserve commendation and our collective
support.
“This war is about the survival of our country
and the right environment has to be created
for the malfeasance to be cleaned and the
right foundations and tools set for greater
Nigeria.
“Unfortunately, emotions are often put
forward before national interest thereby
rubbishing what is otherwise noble and
patriotic undertaking. Some of us that have
done this work and those presently doing it,
have been unduly vilified for nothing other
than daring to confront the corruption
monster. We need to change our attitude, if
we are to make enduring headway in this all-
important battle,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ribadu has re-joined the All
Progressives Congress (APC) after an earlier
defection to the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP).
