According to PUNCH, he made the statement while speaking to journalists after paying a visit to former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida at his residence in Minna, Niger State.
“I do not believe that the anti-corruption war by President Buhari is selective. Someone may look at it in the perspective that it is selective because it is the people in the previous government that are involved and this is because they are the ones who handled the money during that period.
I support President Buhari in the fight against corruption, but as we are fighting corruption, we should also look at the industrial base of the country. No country can survive with only politics. The economy is very important to the nation,” he said.
