Tinubu’s anti-graft war is hope renewal – Okechukwu


Founding member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and
former Director General of Voice of Nigeria, VON, Mr. Osita Okechukwu, has
dubbed President Bola Tinubu’s anti-graft war as hope renewal and
identification with the masses nationwide.


He urged President Tinubu to “Bail-Us-Out from the economic
stranglehold of one per cent class of deep pockets who over the years mangled
the Petrodollars allocated to them for industrial development, hence failed to
lift millions out of poverty.”


Okechukwu, who was reacting at the Enugu airport on Sunday
over the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s recent interrogation of the
utilisation of foreign exchange allocated for industrialisation, agreed that
the nation was in dire need of bailing the citizens out from the stranglehold
of the one per cent class that had been feeding fat on the sordid-forex market.


Okechukwu said, “for me, this amounts to identification with
the collective interest of masses nationwide, as most of us hold the earnest
view that we need to recover more monies, as it is not only General Sani Abacha
that stashed our monies abroad.


“When one learnt that the Ola Olukoyede-led EFCC raided the
Dangote Headquarters and other big wig firms, it is with nostalgia that one
recalled the famous pledge at Independence Thanksgiving Service, National
Ecumenical Christian Center, Abuja, made by our dear First Lady, Senator Remi
Tinubu, that ‘Nigeria’s wealth is the Commonwealth of all, it belongs to
everyone. God has blessed my family, we don’t need the wealth of Nigeria to
survive but to do the right thing and I promise you on this Alta, that with
your help (and) with the help of God, we will set this nation on the right


“One felt relieved and prays that President Tinubu combs all
corners in consortia with Femi Falana’s red dossier, so as to reduce our debt
burden and revamp our economy.”


According to Okechukwu, “this renewed anti-graft-war is the
surest way and means of avoiding more gruesome economic recession, exodus of
our doctors and nurses and erasing the paradox that Nigeria, the country that
produced the richest African, is the World Poverty Capital.”


Okechukwu stated emphatically that if President Tinubu
maintains this anti-graft-war momentum, “it will be pure Hope Renewal and
Nigeria will be one of those history will record as nations where change
emanated from unexpected quarters.”


He therefore appealed that the citizens “should give Mr
President the much needed support to pull through the anti-graft-war and
implement Section 16(2)(c) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria”, which he said cautioned that, “the economic system is not operated in
such a manner as to permit the concentration of wealth or the means of
production and exchange in the hands of few individuals or of group.”
