Nigerians Wake Up, No One Is Fighting Corruption, Chief Emma Osuchukwu

By Ejike Ikezuagu – UK

An elder statesman and London based writer, Chief Emmanuel Chigozie Osuchukwu has asked Nigerians to wake up, no one is fighting corruption. Reacting to what has been known as business as usual, he said, since 1966 every attempt to effect a change of government in Nigeria contained references to fighting corruption.

Chief Osuchukwu, a renowned writer and author of the book, “1966 Crises And The Evolution Of Nigerian Politics” read in Nigerian Universities has a wide knowledge of Nigerian politics reminded Nigerians that the major reason cited by Major Kaduna Nzeogwu and accomplices for the January 1966 coup was to wipe out corruption, but the motivation for that misadventure had nothing to do with corruption. He maintained that every government since Yakubu Gowon always has dossiers of corruption sitting in the records. Some of the military regimes, the primary constituency of President Muhammadu Buhari actually stole the country dry, he said.

Chief Osuchukwu who has extensive United Kingdom public service background, with specialist knowledge of policy development, project commissioning and care management system queried,

“Is Buhari fighting corruption”?


He said if General Sani Abacha was fortunate enough to survive in office and covered his tracks; no one will believe he was a heartless thief. The truth is fighting corruption in Nigeria is a mighty ruse and President Muhammadu Buhari has elevated that art to both science and religion. Apart from intimidating opponents, corruption is thriving right under our noses. Soldiers, policemen, public officials are brazenly conducting their corrupt practices. If Nigeria is serious there should be a University course titled: The Economy of Corruption.

According to Chief Osuchukwu, he said he has read that there is a functional aspect of corruption – the creation of private capital that is not wholly dysfunctional to the economy, however, for the avoidance of doubt, he said he is not legitimizing the terrible social disease called corruption, but there are more critical existential matters facing Nigeria at present, but hardly debated.

He said President Muhammadu Buhari is doing what all dictators do well. They identify the nation’s emotional soft spot; repackage it as the cause and panacea of the national malaise while proceeding with their atrocious hidden agenda. Under Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerian economy is in tatters, insecurity is at its peak even as the deadly Fulani herdsmen are on unilateral truce, unemployment is at crisis level, nepotism and ethnocentrism is practiced in a blatant and at unprecedented level and the fragility of the Nigerian state is at a breaking point.

Chief Emmanuel Osuchukwu alerted Nigerians to beware and Buhari is not fighting corruption. He warned Nigerians to vote him out or else expect a full blown dictatorship after the 2019 elections if Buhari wins.
