National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday maintained that the incumbent government of President Muhammadu Buhari cannot overlook certain things in its fight against corruption.
He therefore charged Nigerians to always put God and the country first in their daily activities.
Tinubu also said, “What is missing (in Nigeria) is patriotism, dedication to God and to our people.”
Speaking shortly after observing his two rakat prayers as part of activities marking the Eid-el-Kabir celebration at the Dodan Barracks praying ground, Lagos State, the former Lagos State governor argued that the ongoing anti-corruption war embarked upon by President Buhari will further strengthen the country’s institutions and fast track development.
“It is part of nation’s development. We cannot overlook a lot of things. And we cannot personalise a lot of things as if it was vendetta. We have to endure and be patient as we look for justice, equity and a balanced society,” he said.
Tinubu declared that to achieve what he termed a just and balanced society, the various institutions in the country must be strengthened.
The APC National leader added, “If we do not strengthen these institutions, how can they work for the development of the nation? If we fail and resortÂ to blackmail, how can the nation reverse the decadence that is perceived in our society?”
