The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to look beyond the immediate past administration of Goodluck Jonathan in its corruption investigations and recover all money stolen from the nation’s treasury.
The National President of the union, Comrade Samson Ugwoke, said this while addressing the National Executive Council meeting/Pre-National Delegate Conference in Jos.
He said the association was in total support of the ongoing fight against corruption by the Buhari government.
He said the government should not spare anyone found to have been involved in stealing the nation’s resources, lamenting that several trillions of naira had been looted from government treasury by those entrusted with public offices.
Comrade Ugwoke said, “The present administration seems to be pursuing anti-corruption war. Corruption has killed this country. We have heard of billions and trillions of naira being looted by officers of government and all of them stashed abroad, not even in our country and in our own banks.
“They use Nigerian money to grow and improve the economy of other countries, leaving us in poverty. SSANU supports the fight against corruption but with a caveat, Mr. President should pursue whoever has stolen our money to return it to our coffers.
“The probe of the looters should not be selective, it should be total, that is the stand of SSANU. It should be total and be extended to 1999, so that those who have killed this country since 1999 should be brought to book.”
