The lawmaker representing Okitipupa/Irele Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Mr. Mike Omogbehin, has declared that the war against corruption initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari is a total fiasco.

Omogbehin said this in reaction to several funds that were discovered by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) without any valid trace to the owners of the loots, especially the N13 billion in Osborne, Lagos State.

The lawmaker, who is a member of House Committee on National Security and Intelligence, reiterated that his committee would probe the involvement of National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

While speaking during the presenting of annual bursary and empowerment items worth millions of naira to the people of his constituency in Idepe, Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state yesterday, he decried the anti-corruption war of the present administration.

He lamented that the anti-corruption crusade has become a witch-hunt spree against members of the opposition parties in the country.

According to him, “Buhari’ s administration has lost it, it has no war in place against corruption, what we have in place is witch hunting. It is very clear from what has been happening. They have been telling us they see money planted in airport, we have another in Balogun, is money that cheap?”

Also, the Senator representing Niger East, David Umaru said the national assembly consists of highly patriotic Nigerians who cannot be intimidated into working along the path of base and primordial sentiments of religion and tribalism.
