On Tuesday, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, a chieftain of the supreme Igbo sociocultural group Ohanaeze Ndigbo, called President Bola Tinubu to investigate the government of his predecessor, Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Isiguzoro, the investigation will prevent the Nigerian economy from going downhill any further.
The Ohanaeze factional secretary general has demanded that the investigation look into the careless use of foreign loans that were never repaid throughout Buhari’s administration.
Under the title “Urgent action required: Probe Buhari, Ministers, and close aides to save Nigeria’s agonizing economy,” he made the demand in a statement.
In a statement made by Isiguzoro, the head of the Igbo people’s social and cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to find the moral will to rescue Nigeria’s faltering economy.
It is about time for an official investigation of the gross economic mismanagement that occurred in Nigeria under President Buhari’s watch from 2015 to 2023 to begin.
The massive re-looting of recovered loot from corrupt individuals and business organizations by ministers, close associates, and family members of Buhari must also be addressed by the probe.
The economic teams under Buhari were inept, and they boldly re-looted seized assets, which is directly responsible for the unfathomable pain and poverty that the Ndigbo and everyone of Nigeria had to bear.
President Tinubu must launch an inevitable thorough investigation of Buhari’s administration if he wants to stop the economic suffering protests from spreading, which were briefly halted by the African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Nigerians are in disbelief at the vast fortunes amassed by Buhari’s ministers, personal assistants, and relatives; these fortunes outweigh those of individual states and even surpass the aggregate wealth of all 36 states in Nigeria.
“The first step toward Nigeria’s economic recovery is for these individuals to be forced to refund all the loot that has been “re-looted.”
