“Buhari can fight corruption”-Former EFCC Boss, Farida Waziri

Erstwhile Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mrs. Farida Waziri, has described President Muhammadu Buhari as a man of destiny who must be supported by all Nigerians without respect to their religious, ethnic and political affiliations.

The lawyer, who disclosed this on Saturday in Uga-Mbagwa, Oshongo Local Government Area of Benue State while fielding questions from newsmen after the commissioning of her community’s worship centre, noted that she believes Buhari because “he is believable and he has remained constant like the morning star since I know him and beyond that. I’m sure that he is a man of destiny, a resolute, sincere and committed leader who says what he means and does what he preaches.

She went on to observe that the President remains the only leader in the history of Nigeria who has contested the presidential election for four consecutive times and on the fourth time made history by defeating an incumbent president.

According to her, “Remember he almost paid the ultimate price when his convoy was targeted in Kaduna before the election? Some other persons would have chickened out and even flee the country but he remained resolute and committed to the course he believed in.

“That I can tell you, is the kind of gut the nation needs at this critical time especially to fight corruption which is one of our greatest challenges today,” she said.

Explaining why nothing was heard from her during and after the recent general elections, Mrs. Waziri explained that she has been out of the country attending to some pressing issues. She however expressed happiness that President Buhari won the presidential election against all odds and urged Nigerians to come together and salvage the country irrespective of their differences.

“We have no other country other than Nigeria, this is why I plead with everyone I meet to please support the Buhari administration because that is the only sure way we can make Nigeria a better place not only for ourselves but for generations coming behind us,” she said.

The former anti-graft boss further asserted that the number of positive changes that are already being witnessed by Nigerians within the first three weeks of the new regime is an indication that a lot of things will change for good under the Buhari government

“When the right leadership is provided and in place, a lot of things will naturally fall in place. That answers the question being asked by Nigerians at the moment: how come we’re now told that our refineries will start working? That’s enough to convince us that a lot of good things will come in place under the Buhari government as long as we are ready to play our role as patriotic citizens,” she averred
