President hailed for anti-graft moves

Several groups and highly-placed Nigerians have been commending President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s approach to governance.

His policies and actions on the economy, politics, and anti-graft battle have received kudos.

Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo Youth Wing commended the President for being proactive in handling the allegations against top officials of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management.

The President suspended Dr. Betta Edu, the minister, over allegations of directing payment of N585 million vulnerable peoples’ funds into a private account.

The minister was handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation.

The Ohanaeze Youth cautioned yesterday against a media trial for Dr. Edu. They advised that the investigation should be thorough and appropriate action taken.

Speaking at a news conference yesterday, the group’s National Youth Leader Chukwuma Okpalaezeukwu also commended the President for ordering an investigation into allegations against the National Coordinator of the National Social Investment Programme Halima Shehu.

He said: “Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo Youth Wing commends President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for his adherence to the Rule of Law on this issue.

“We also thank him for setting up a presidential panel to investigate the veracity of the allegations instead of sacking her outright.

“Consequently, we hereby urged Nigerians to allow her a fair hearing and let the ongoing investigation run its course without media trial. It is becoming clear that some people are bent on bringing down the suspended minister.”

Okpalaezeukwu urged Nigerians to give those under investigation the benefit of the doubt.
