The Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) yesterday reacted to the statement of President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday on the fight against corruption which involved some governors and subsidy thieves.
In a statement made available to LEADERSHIP, the National Publicity Secretary, Engr Rotimi Fashakin, said President Jonathan lacked the political will to tackle the menace.
He said, “As a party, we strongly believe that President Jonathan lacks the necessary power to break the inertia of the fight against corruption. Everything about his regime is personification of opacity and corruption.”
The statement also accused the Jonathan-led government of corrupting the electoral process, alleging that governors loyal to this administration win election irrespective of their political parties. Jonathan’s government was also berated for bastardising national honours.
“His (Jonathan) government has corrupted the electoral process to the extent that it is only governors that have the president’s nod that win elections irrespective of their political parties.
"His government has driven the final nail in the bastardisation of the national honours regime. His regime specialises in official cover-up. It is a huge ruse because the leopard is incapable of changing its spots. It is another spin from the Jonathan regime.”
