Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to reorganise the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to give it more powers to fight corruption and other related financial crimes in the country.

“Given that nothing substantially is being done to fight corruption, one is primed to advise Mr. President to immediately reorganise the EFCC to effective discharge of its mandate,” the former Minister of Information told a press conference in Abuja, yesterday.

“In all advanced democracies, anti graft agencies would swing into action following the kind of revelations and allegations against most people walking free on our streets today. Unfortunately our own anti graft agencies have simply adopted a sidon look position. What a shame.”

Clark, while speaking further also noted that with the renewed offensive against the Boko Haram-led insurgency, the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s, Presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari had nothing more to offer as his campaign promise was hinged primarily on fighting the insurgents.

“General Muhammadu Buhari has always anchored his campaign promises on two cardinal planks: to wipe out insecurity and corruption. With the renewed offensive against the terrorists leading to the killing and dislodgement of the Boko Haram anarchists, the first campaign plank of Buhari has been given a technical knock-out by President Goodluck Jonathan and the whole world is witnessing the reclaiming of all territories hitherto held by Boko Haram.

“This leaves him on a one legged platform. Again, on the remaining: corruption, General Buhari himself got jittery and gave himself another technical knock-out when he said that he will not probe past leaders.

“With this development, Buhari has conceded that he has nothing more to offer the good people’s of this country.
In fact, I make bold to say that he is now standing for nothing and like they say he can fall for anything,” Clark said.
