Sign executive order to tackle questionable wealth, corruption, Ndume tells Buhari

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sign an executive order on unexplained wealth in order to tackle corruption.

Ndume, who was the guest lecturer at the University of Ibadan 2021 Distinguished Leadership Lecture, said this in Ibadan on Saturday.

Delivering the lecture titled, ‘Unexplained wealth and the fight against corruption in Nigeria, Ndume said for corruption to be nipped in the bud, the war against it must start from the politicians to the civil servants.

He said, “One should not be mistaken on how good it is to have riches, but toxic riches should be abhorred because it pollutes the society. It changes our good culture, it breeds injustice and impunity. Every citizen has a role to play.

“Our crusade against this monster should start from politicians, top public servants, civil servants down to the local government staff.

“Our whistle blower policy which had stillbirth before it became law must be revisited. The motivation should not just be the reward, but patriotism,” he said.
