Mr Corruption Abdulsalami led Peace Committee -Group urge to scrap the garbage

A group known as Nigeria Rebirth Initiative (NRI) has called on the Federal Government to disband the National Peace Com­mittee headed by the for­mer Head of State, Gener­al Abdulsalami Abubakar.

The group, in a state­ment issued to the media yesterday, in Port Har­court, Rivers State, said the recent visit of mem­bers of the committee to plead with President Mu­hammadu Buhari to keep to terms and guidelines of the peace committee in prosecuting the corruption war, was targeted at find­ing a possible soft landing for Jonathan or members of his cabinet.

Executive Director of NRI, Joseph Ambakaderi­mo, said since the com­mittee was set up to fore­stall any form of violence before, during and after the March 28 Presidential election, “it has now over lived its functions and should be disbanded.”

Ambakaderimo ex­pressed worry that the recent visit of the team to Buhari was “an aberra­tion” to the fight against corruption that “almost brought the economy of this country to the can­vass.”

Also, the statement lam­basted the committee’s spokesman and the Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, for deny­ing that they embarked on the visit to Abuja on the behest of Jonathan.

“We want to see a quali­tative and quantitative change in the lives of Ni­gerians. Nobody knows how Buhari’s presidency will end, nobody knows what will happen to him when he finishes his ten­ure.
“The stick that they are using to whip Jonathan may be the stick that they will used to whip Buhari tomorrow,” Bishop Kukah was quoted to have said.

Ambakaderimo said: “Members of that commit­tee have lost their integ­rity. They don’t deserve to be respected by Nigerians any more.

“How can anybody openly plead that people, who stole the country blind should not be pros­ecuted?

“What will Kukah tell his church members about corruption? Is Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor going to tell his followers that there was no corruption in Jonathan’s government? Tell me what Bishop John Onaiyekan will preach on corruption to his congregation?

“These are men that should give Buhari the needed support to stop the trend of corruption that has eaten deep into the na­tional life of this country over the years,” he said.

The group called on President Buhari not to have sacred cows in the fight against corruption, ir­respective of their status in the society.

He assured the Fed­eral Government of the group’s unalloyed support in the present fight against graft..”
