Buhari To Face Corruption Charges After May 29

OpenLife Nigeria reports that against the expectations that President Muhammadu Buhari would take a well deserved rest from May 29 after eight gruelling years managing the socio political, economic and diplomatic bearings of Nigeria, indications have emerged that he may be standing before court justices to explain his stewardship from the standpoint of transparency.
These are the plans of some Nigerians who are of the view that Buhari and his coterie of staff in government have mismanaged scarce resources some of which are obvious corrupt practices.
Among those waiting to hit the court immediately after May 29 is a renowned lawyer who has requested for anonymity “For now.”
The lawyer lamented the high level of corruption perpetrated by Buhari’s government.
Speaking to OpenLife in Benin City Sunday night, he pointed out the humongous theft in the evacuation of stranded Nigerians in Sudan saying that the figures being quoted by government have further mocked Nigeria in the international community as a corrupt county that is not prepared for economic growth and liberation from poverty.
Buhari has to face many criminal corrupt charges after his tenure. The scandals are too much. I and some of my co lawyers will take him to court after leaving office on May 29 to answer corruption charges. Just imagine the figures the government is saying they are spending on evaquating stranded Nigerians from Sudan?How many Nigerians did they move with $1.2m? How many buses paid for? Show Nigerians the transfer processes and receipts as evidence of payment. How much did they spend on biscuits and water? Who are the people that ate it? They must give details of their phone numbers and addresses,” he requested.

Earlier, federal government gave a breakdown of the $1.2m spent on the bus fare to evacuate stranded Nigerians from Sudan to Egypt’s borders for onward airlifting to Nigeria.

The Permanent Secretary of the Humanitarian Affairs Ministry and Chair of the Situation Room on the evacuation of Nigerians from Sudan, Nasir Sani-Gwarzo, gave the explanation in Abuja.

Sani-Gwarzo explained that $30,000 was paid per bus and that 40 buses were procured for the proper evacuation of the stranded Nigerian citizens in Sudan.
He said,

The $1.2m is not for the entire response but for one item: hiring the buses. We paid $30,000 per bus and we hired 40 buses which makes it $1.2m. We now mobilised the first approved by the Federal Government which is $400,000 and transferred it.”
