The fight against corruption will yield no gain with the current way it’s being fought, with govt officials purposely leaking documents to the media instead of charging the accused to court.
One of the most talked about promises made my President Muhammadu Buhari is to make the dollar equal to a Naira.
Now let the truth be told, those of us who supported him knew that he can never make it possible since he does not control the oil prices, but we kept selling the promises just to get support. Most importantly, we believed that even though he cannot equal the two currencies, he can stabilize the Naira.
Many months down the line, it’s obvious that it was a scam of the century. Before our eyes, the economy is crumbling and for the first time in history, Naira has fallen to its lowest exchanging N305 to $1. Now this is a cause for concern.
We cannot pretend to be doing orgasm show of fighting corruption when the soul of the economy is going down faster than we ever had it. The currency fall of a nation is the fall of the nation. Make no mistake about it, the big men have dollars piled up in their houses and are rejoicing over this fall.
The fight against corruption will yield no gain with the current way it’s being fought, with government officials purposely leaking documents to the media instead of charging the accused to court. Buhari should as a matter of urgency do everything within the law to see that the Naira come back to N100 unless we may soon begin to use Ghana must go to carry an exchange of just $100. We are that close already.
The government should dwell less on fighting this so called corruption and devote time to governance. We did not elect you to start fighting corruption, even though we agree it should be done, but life should be made comfortable for citizens.
At the moment, things are hard and the fault lies solely on the President’s shoulder. To say that things are hard because the places of looting money are now sealed up is an argument for the dumb brains. Was I stealing money under Jonathan and yet I was living better or was my father a politician yet faring better?
Truth be told, PMB is yet to get a grasp of this government and even yet to understand the workings of a modern democratic government and if he will admit it, we can volunteer to teach him. The Naira must not be so devalued.
