From Emmanuel Ogoigbe, Warri
A legal luminary and Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Wilson Alasha, has urged Nigerians to join President Muhammadu Buhari in the fight against corruption and unwholesome activities.
Alasha said Buhari inherited a lot of socio-economic vices which crippled the nation’s economy, insisting that efforts must be geared towards revamping the bastardised economy, including defeating terrorism and political backwardness.
Alasha, who has just defected to APC with scores of his allies, however, made it clear that he did not pitch tent with the party to seek political office, adding that his action was borne of the fact that APC has credible men and women who can take the country to the promise land.
He told newsmen in Warri that Buhari has respect for human rights, adding that, “the problem we had initially was that Buhari is a soldier, he has no patience for indolence and that is what obtains in the military.”
On the fight against corruption, the Warri-based legal luminary further said: “Buhari has made up his mind to fight corruption to a standstill but, it is the elite who say the fight is one-sided, and, if you look critically into this issue, you will find out that the elite are most corrupt.”
