President Muhammadu Buhari was at the 61st Independence anniversary of Ghana on Tuesday, during the course of his speech, Buhari pledged to groom Ghana on ways of fighting corruption, which he noted, had eaten deep into the fabric of both nations. Nigerians on Twitter couldn’t hide their surprise as they wondered why Nigeria would help Ghana fight corruption while we are still battling our own. Below are 8 of the replies to Buahari.
Ghana is at 81 on this year’s Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, while Nigeria is at 148. My question to President Buhari is this: how can you help a nation that is less corrupt than yours to fight corruption? It’s like a demon offering to deliver a pastor!

Rather than promise to help Ghana fight corruption, show by example that you are fighting corruption, and not opposition in Nigeria. If corruption is increasing in your nation, you make yourself a laughing stock if you promise to fight it in another nation. Charity begins at home

Buhari told the Ghanaians he would help them to fight corruption! Next he will tell the Americans that he will help them to fight terror and the Germans, Chinese and Japs that he will help them to improve their economy! When delusion and senility converge it is a terrible thing.

Buhari wants to help Ghana fight corruption. Example of dropping your own load to carry someone else’s load.
