A Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie, on Tuesday said it would be difficult for her principal to remove Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members, who are serving in his government overnight.
Onochie stated this at the 2nd annual international conference in Abuja, with the theme “Focusing on institutions: A panacea for sustainable development.”
She claimed that more than 50 percent of PDP members were in the Buhari government serving in the presidency, judiciary and law enforcement agencies.
“That brings me to those who are in this government to serve themselves. Those Col. (rtd) Hammed Ali, the CG Customs called PDP. He said that there is about 50 percent of them in this government.
“But I say no they are more than 50 percent. They are everywhere. They are in the presidency, the national assembly. You can find them in the judiciary, they are in the law enforcement agency.
“They serve their personal interest. They encourage unsuspecting youths, our youths to be their foot soldiers on the social media to abuse and curse people while their own children are sipping tea in England or America or elsewhere. They are a poor example to our youngsters on the social media.
“You just don’t go and change all the agencies. That is not how it works. If you have to change the whole civil service, the whole police, the whole market women, you change the whole children in the school,” Onochie said.
She said Nigerians must come together to fight corruption before it kills the nation.
“Corruption is everywhere. All of us must come together and join hands with this president to kill corruption before corruption kills our nation.
“Our youth population is in need of good role models. They were born into corruption,” she said.
