LIKE DASUKI LIKE BURATAI: THE CHRONICLE OF MISSING FUNDS FOR ARMS PURCHASE

The life span of the previous Goodluck Jonathan led administration was ended chiefly by two main factors. First, the inability government to guarantee safety amid persistent rise in level of insecurity. Second, the general conviction that only a man of Muhammadu Buhari’s public integrity with zero tolerance for all kinds of corrupt acts can uncompromisingly ride Nigeria out of the mud of corruption. PMB’s incorruptibility and clean records of dealing professionally with gross public misconducts during is time as military head of state, explains why a popular Hausa political praise-singer, Dauda Kahuta Rara, sang “Masu gudu su gudu”, forewarning public office holders with any corrupt indictment to flee the country before PMB is swore in.
To think Nigeria is winning war against corruption under the stewardship of Mr integrity is subject to public opinion. Mr integrity was at the helm of affairs when in 2019 one Mrs Philomina Chieshe, a clerk at JAMB office in Benue state, alleged that a snake swallow a whopping sum of #36 million. How much more of former MD of NDDC who slump down when asked to account for how #70 billion got missing from the commission’s treasure. Maybe corruption only wax stronger under our supposed Mr integrity.
The National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno might be another version of a coward whistleblower like Obadiah Mailafia, who made weighty allegations only to foolishly recant their words not because they lack evidence to prove their claims, but because those they might be pointing fingers at enjoys state protection.
Just like Sambo Dasuku, General Tukur Buratai is another squandermania whose innocent cannot be assume until proven otherwise by a court of competent jurisdiction on such matter. We can only get the truism or falsehood of this allegation if the armor shielding the entire ministry of Defence away from probe is taken off.
