No sacred cows in fight against corruption – Moghalu charges govt.

Professor Kingsley Moghalu

PRESIDENTIAL candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP in the 2019 general election, Professor Kingsley Moghalu has expressed concern over weighty allegations and revelations from some quarters in the recent times which suggest that some bigwigs in the government are involved in corrupt activities and abuse of office.

Moghalu, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and Professor of Political Economics on his social media handle stated that accountability in the public service must go beyond rhetoric but in reality, and not factional.

“Unless and until there is criminal accountability from all the corruption scandals raging in the NDDC, NSITF and EFCC, it’s all sound and fury, signifying nothing. And when we speak of accountability we are talking about the real bigwigs, not small fry taking the fall.

“If the events at the national Assembly with recent questioning and responses are anything to go by, with members identified as having gotten 60% of the contracts at NDDC, you can see why this is all a merry-go-round. God help us!

“Regardless of whatever may emerge from the investigations of Magu, this, as I have said in an earlier tweet on the subject, is all a factional war, and ALL the factions need to be brought to account”, Moghalu stated.
