Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has blasted ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari, and Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, for focusing too much on loot recovery, rather than fighting corruption itself.
Recall, that the current administration, led by Buhari and Osinbajo, has recently set up a Committee on the Recovery of Looted Assets.
Saraki while speaking in Abuja, on Tuesday, called on Buhari and his Vice, Osinbajo, to pay more attention to destroying corruption, than placing emphasis on the recovery of loot.
He said: “You see, let us separate recovery, from the fight against corruption. We still believe that yes, recoveries are being done, but are we doing anything to actively stop corruption going on now. The Presidency should focus more on fighting corruption, than loot recovery.
“This recovery has gone out there. They are two separate issues. The focus I am seeing is recovery, but corruption is still there. That is the area that we are focusing on as a Senate.
“Anybody that brings a case about what is happening now, we will go in, look at those Agencies and expose them. We want to continue to represent the people in that way
