Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central, on the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC, yesterday said the anti-corruption war by the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration was been driven by political consideration. Speaking at the 8th Forum of the laureates of Nigerian National Order of Merit in Abuja, Sani charged the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCT, to probe the asset declarations of other governors who served at the same time as the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, adding that politics should not be combined with anti-corruption war.
According to him, political considerations could affect the anti-corruption fight. He further added, “It is only in Nigeria that one says because somebody has contributed to the success of the ruling party, corruption charges should be withdrawn against him. But if he falls out of favour tomorrow, then, EFCC will bring up the remaining charges.”
