The Federal Government says will probably be unfair for Nigerians to measure its achievements within the battle in opposition to corruption by the variety of convictions it has secured.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said this on Monday when he featured on a dwell TVC News Programme, “This Morning” monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
“He said that the administration has succeeded in laying enduring foundation for the fight against corruption through sustainable policies including the Single Treasury Account (TSA), Whistle Blower Policy”.
“Mohammed said with the solid foundation, the fight against corruption will remain the bedrock of the administration in the next four years.”
“Under this administration, we insisted and have succeeded in making certain that each one funds and revenues are paid into the TSA”
“Before we got here in, the federal authorities had over 2000 completely different accounts in numerous banks which resulted in paying a number of billions on Naira in fees”.
“The authorities then additionally by no means had an concept of how a lot it had as income
“Today, over N9.3 trillion has gone into the TSA and that is why it is possible for us to invest especially in the area of infrastructure and social investment programmes,” he mentioned.
“The minister said with the TSA savings, the government spent unprecedented N2.7 trillion on the development of infrastructure in 2017 and 2018 and also introduced accountability in spending of government resources”.
He mentioned the Whistle Blower coverage has helped in blocking corruption and restoration of looted funds.
Mohammed disclosed that the federal government has, so far, recovered a number of billions of Naira and about 53 million USD by means of the coverage alone.
“He said the administration’s fight against corruption has been recognised abroad with the AU’s recognition of President Muhammadu Buhari as the champion of anti-corruption”.
“The minister said that the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) also recognised the efforts of the administration in fighting corruption”.
“When we are saying the battle in opposition to corruption is profitable is as a result of we’ve got laid the muse that may make it tough for people to have interaction within the evil act”.
“For us success of the battle in opposition to corruption is the truth that we’ve got pushed corruption below the desk and make it unattractive because it was earlier than”.
“Those who are corrupt are doing so with the fear of the law. It will be progressive,y become more and more difficult in Nigeria for corruption to be attractive,” he mentioned.
On the allegation that the federal government’s anti corruption battle was in opposition to perceived enemies and opposition, the minister mentioned it was a false impression.
“We had 16 years of unbroken rule by the PDP so the possible people who can be accused of misuse of sources needs to be the people who had been in cost” .
“We also have some former governors who decamped to APC who have also been convicted,” he mentioned.
The minister reiterated that the anti-corruption battle could be frontal within the subsequent 4 years of the administration of President Buhari
