Jonathan Says Corrupt People Accuse Govt. of Not Fighting Corruption


President Goodluck Jonathan has said those accusing him of not fighting

corruption are indeed the corrupt ones in the society.

General Mohammadu Buhari, former Governor Ahmed Bola Tinubu and lately,

former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, all of the All Progressive Congress,

APC have accused the President of corruption.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal had also said

the body language of the President has been encouraging corruption.

But President Jonathan in what could be seen as a direct response to the

accusers said those seeking credibility, go on air to accuse the

Government of corruption.
“Anybody who wants to claim an element of credibility will go to the

television and accuse government of corruption, that the President's body

language shows that he is not fighting corruption or that he is not ready

to fight corruption.
“Sometimes, even the very corrupt people are those making these statements

because if you attack government, you are insulated, you become an angel.

“If you want to be an angel, just attack the government, whatever you have

done is covered.”
President Jonathan spoke after swearing in the chairman and members of the

National Population Commission; a member of the Independent Corrupt

Practices and other Related Offences Commission and two special advisers

at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
