Yusuf’s reinstatement: Ozekhome attacks Buhari


A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Chief Mike Ozekhome, has attacked President Muhammadu Buhari, describing his fight against corruption as a ploy to hoodwink innocent members of the society.

Ozekhome said this in reaction to the reinstatement of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme , Prof. Usman Yusuf, by President Buhari.

According to the senior lawyer, it was very clear that the current administration’s war against corruption was selective.

He told reporters, “This is one more exemplication of the truism that this government fights corruption within the government with sweet – smelling Sasarobia perfume while it fights corruption against opponents and critics of government with a powerful insecticide.

“That is why the government will order the arrest of Kasim Afegbua for merely advising the President not to seek re-election.

“That is why a whole minister will remove a person after a panel of enquiry has found the person culpable and the President will reinstate that person.

“It shows again and again the issue of corruption being fought is a ruse to hoodwink the unwary and ignorant members of the society. No corruption is being fought at all.”
