Former President Goodluck Jonathan: The Christian Association of Nigeria, Lagos State chapter, over the weekend called for the immediate prosecution of former President Goodluck Jonathan for corruption while in office. The Chairman of Lagos CAN, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said this while addressing newsmen in Lagos over the weekend. On why Jonathan should be probe, he said:
“What is wrong with it? A former President of Peru (Alberto Fujimori) was jailed. Also, a popular prime minister of Israel (Ehud Olmert) was jailed. If a nation puts you in a position of trust and you betray that trust, you should go to jail no matter who you are. I have no sympathy for anybody. Just make sure you get it right, and we get the facts right as well.”
Former President Shehu Shagari: Dr. Samuel Uche, of the prelate, Methodist church Nigeria, while speaking on Saturday, February 13 at the maiden Founder’s Day anniversary and inauguration of Very Rev. Sunday Onadipe as rector of Methodist theological institute, Sagamu in Ogun state said that the anti-corruption war championed by President Muhammadu Buhari must begin from the Shehu Shagari-led government.
“My advice to the President is that the fight against corruption should be total and shouldn’t be a selective fight. Let him go back to 1979 and start fighting corruption till today. If it is lonely and lopsided, it will seem as a (political) vendetta against the opposition. Nobody will tell him that but the church will tell him that and that is how we see it.
