National Leader of the All Progressives’ Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said that the Administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan won a gold medal in corruption.
Tinubu said this at the Book Launch which took place in the State House, Abuja, today. According to him, under Jonathan’s Administration, so much money grew feet and ran away faster than Usain Bolt ever could.
The APC Leader said:
“The prior Government used the Public Treasury as a private hedge fund or a charity that limited its giving only to themselves. So much money grew feet and ran away faster than Usain Bolt ever could. That which could have been spent on national development was squandered in ways that would cause the devil to blush.
“One Minister and her rogues’ gallery picked the pocket of this nation for billions of dollars. While poor at governance, these people could give a master thief lessons in the sleight of hand.
In governance, they earned a red card but in corruption, they won the gold medal. It was not that our Institutions had become infected by corruption. Corruption has become institutionalised.”
