Senator representing Kaduna Central, Comrade Senator Shehu Sani has reinvigorated the popular outcry about the ongoing anti graft war, saying that for the fight against corruption to be successful, it must be all encompassing.
Sani reiterated that if the fight against corruption must succeed, it must not be limited to those out of power or the opposition alone.
“It must not always be limited to people who disagree politically with the ruling political party or enemies of the ruling APC party. It should be extended to the friends of the ruling party as long as they are corrupt. If you arrest enemies of president, arrest friends of president who are corrupt,” he said.
Sani who spoke during an emergency private visit to Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Kaduna, said even though President Muhammadu Buhari has significantly addressed the problems of the country, there are still challenges.
He said ” I am here to encourage you”, stressing that as journalists, it’s their duty and that of National asseYmbly members to keep the citizens enlightened of their fundamental rights.
“I am here to encourage you to do your job without fear of intimidation. Some of us will never compromise as much as possible because of power.
“As President, Governors, Senators and reps, our conduct should reflect our office as leaders,” he explained
Senator Sani urged journalists to continue to uphold to tenets of their profession for being objective and accurate in their reportage, as Society depends on them for knowledge, despite the risk and hazard.Fight Against Corruption Must Be All Encompassing – Shehu Sani
