Corruption Under Buhari, Worst – Kukah


The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has claimed that the Muhammadu Buhari administration witnessed the ugliest face of corruption.

Kukah stated this while speaking on Monday in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

He was delivering a lecture at the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the call to bar of the founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN).

The lecture was titled ‘The future of constitutional democracy in Nigeria: Imperative of a new constitutional order’.

While clarifying that the trend didn’t start under Buhari, the cleric maintained that corruption festered under the ex-president’s watch.

He said, “We have seen the worst phase of corruption in Nigeria. Femi Falana, my friend here, will speak about that because he has published a series of articles talking about what happened under the Buhari administration.

“They were not the ones who caused corruption but I think in the last administration, we saw the ugliest phase of corruption whether in moral terms, financial terms, and other terms,” he said.

In his lecture, Kukah made a case for men of integrity in the judiciary particularly at the Supreme Court.
