Buhari Really Fighting Corruption in Nigeria – Deji Fasuan

Former Federal Commissioner in the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC), Chief Deji Fasuan, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his fight against corruption.

Fasuan who said Buhari is doing well in the fight against graft urged Nigerians to support their President to ensure that the war is won and the nation’s stolen commonwealth is recovered.

The retired Permanent Secretary spoke on the heels of his conferment with the title of Asiwaju of Afao-Ekiti his hometown by the monarch, Oba Joseph Ademilua.

Fasuan said his community had not lost sight of his developmental strides in the past which include the establishment of Are/Afao Comprehensive High School in 1978 alongside two deceased comrades, Elder Femi Esan and Mr. Deji Olaofe.

He also explained that facilitated extension of water from Ureje Water Dam to communities like Iworoko, Are, Afao and Araromi Obbo during his tenure as the General Manager of old Ondo State Water Corporation in 1980.

Fasuan also noted that he is being honoured for his role in collaboration with the late Olaofe in 1984 to carry out extension of electricity supply from Iluomoba (in present-day Gbonyin Local Government) to Afao, Araromi, Araromi Obbo and Iworoko.

He said: “These are events that my people have not forgotten and I am grateful for their reciprocal action.

“One cannot ignore the fact that Ekiti State government is doing its utmost in the critical development of the state and particularly Afao where a model secondary school and a General Hospital are being established. Our people should show appreciation for thesedevelopmental projects.”

On Buhari’s anti-corruption war, Fasuan said: “Corruption in Nigeria has been so endemic that no country in Africa can share the ‘league title’ with Nigeria. It was the mantra and platform by which Buhari came on board.

“Buhari has been prosecuting it conscientiously but our President is not a magician, he cannot arrest in two years what has been endemic for decades. Buhari is on course on the anti-graft war.

“We must also realize that the beneficiaries of corruption will fight back dirty. As far as I am concerned and as far as many other Nigerians are concerned, he (Buhari) is doing wonderfully well in that area.”
