He made the statement in Enugu yesterday at PDP’s presidential campaign rally. According to him, the best way to fight corruption is through improved technology and not by jailing people for 300 years. He said: “With technology, you can
track down criminals. I am not going to run Nigeria on my heartbeat but according to international best practices. I will continue to run this country based on the rule of law.’’ On Buhari, he said:
“Is it now that Buhari cannot even remember his own phone number that he can change the economy of the country. We cannot run the government as if we are in the medieval age; we cannot run a government where somebody said he would throw people into jail.
You are not a medieval king – a medieval king can throw you into jail but we have to follow the rule of law because we cannot go back to the old days. You can no longer carry people and put them in prison for 301 years. If a Nigerian businessman has a private jet, then you are corrupt but if a South African has a private jet then you commend him.
If you have a good house, then you are corrupt, if you have a good car then you are corrupt – that is his definition of corruption. They are saying we stole foreign reserves, nobody can steal foreign reserves – spurious allegations.”…… APC needs to beg GEJ to pardon them. Ds is too much……
