‘President Buhari’s anti-graft war is selective, Nigerians say’- Aljazirah Poll

By Amina Isah, Abuja

Nigerians have stated that the anti-graft war being pursued by the Muhammadu Buhari led government is not a comprehensive one but a selective battle targeting perceived enemies of the incumbent powers that be.

This was the assertion gotten from an online poll conducted by Aljazirah Nigeria over the past few weeks.

AljazirahNigeria initiated the poll segment a few weeks ago on its website for Nigerians to vote for or against President Buhari’s mode of anti-corruption fight.

After the results had been tallied, it was discovered that Nigerians were not impressed with the president’s war on graft.

Details of the result shows what Nigerian’s think negatively of the present government’s war on graft.

While 72 percent of voters believed that the war was selective, 25 percent say it is not.

Only 3 percent were undecided.

The President has been accused of deliberately turning a blind eye to the atrocities or allegations of graft or official impropriety leveled against high ranking members of his government over the last few months.

He has also been accused of not taking issues bordering on abuse of office by close members of his cabinet and associates seriously.

On the flipside, those accused of corruption but who are not aligned to the incumbent government via party affiliation or governance have been having their day in court and the detention of anti-corruption agencies.

Editor’s note- Aljazirah Nigeria however accepts the fact that this poll is not a holistic view due to its mini, fair representation.
