Former minister of petroleum resources Tam David-West said President Muhammadu Buhari is not corrupt, David-West declared that the sufferings in Nigeria are not caused by President Buhari
He urged the president to work more to ensure that the nation economy improves Former minister of petroleum resources Tam David-West said President Muhammadu Buhari is not corrupt saying that he can ‘bet his life’ on the integrity of the president.
David-West said there is no comparison between the Kastina-born president and former military president Ibrahim Babangida. In an interview with Daily Trust, David-West said: ”Buhari and Babangida are two different personalities. Buhari is a clean man.
I can take any oath that Buhari is very clean and I won’t die. ”I cannot do that on Babangida. I cannot vouch for him not because he put me in jail but because that is the fact. Buhari has some good qualities, some positive characteristics that Babangida doesn’t have.”
According to him, ”Another thing is that if Buhari tells you something, believe it is true. But if Babangida tells you something, don’t be too sure. ”I want to quote former President, Obasanjo, when he said: ”When Babangida tells you good morning, check your watch very well if truly it is morning’.”
”Except Nigeria tackles corruption, we cannot go forward. I am not being self-righteous but I think any government that fails to fight corruption as we did is a failed government. ”There is a lot of suffering in the land.
The sufferings are not caused by Buhari; it is as a result of bad management before he assumed office as President. Buhari needs to work more to ensure that the economy improves. I am not happy with the economic situation.
