What APC Said In 2014 And What Buhari Said In 2020 About Probing Past And Present Corrupt Leaders

President Buhari became presidential candidate under the All Progressives Congress (APC) political party in 2014. As a candidate, he made several pledges to the party and to the godfather of the party. In 2015, many supporters and proponents of his campaign were rewarded with political positions when he assumed executive power. These positions were awarded without essential probes into the leadership potentials and ethical backgrounds of the aspirants. Many of Nigeria’s leaders today under President Buhari, are heavily blemished with significant corruption allegations.

In 2014, APC chairman, John Oyegun, said if Buhari is elected as Nigeria’s president in 2015, he will not immediately go after past leaders, politicians and officials, who stole the country dry; he would instead  be more focused on solving Nigeria’s many problems left behind by the former leaders.

On July 31st 2020, Buhari said “All past and present corruption cases will be fully investigated. All of such cases will be uncovered and firmly dealt with. There has been abuse of trust by people trusted by the previous administration and this administration.”
