Speaking through its State Chairman, Comrade Folarin Olayinka, the CDHR, presented a letter to the State Governor for onward transmission to the President frowned at the level of corruption in the country.
“The Nigerian masses are not satisfied with the situation of things hence we want the President to look inwards. The corruption war should not be sectionalized. Wherever the looters are, they should be hunted and brought to book. We are saying that the returned loot is enough to fix electricity, infrastructure and reposition our country”, Olayinka said.
The State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun while receiving the letter described the current situation in the country as critical, promising that the letter would reach the appropriate quarters within 24 hours.

“Where we find ourselves as a country is shameful. Nigeria needs discipline, transparency and good governance. We are not happy about happenings in our land. What President Mohamadu Buhari is doing is to bring to governance discipline, commitment and the fear of God. It is a difficult process because corruption must fight back. It is shameful but I must state very clearly that what has taken 16 years to mess up will be difficult to clear in a spate of 10 months”, the Governor said.
