The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has vowed to continue fighting corruption like President Muhammadu Buhari did.
Tinubu who pledged to continue Buhari’s civil service reforms to reduce corruption has started what seems to be obvious to all with the good start he is fighting corruption with.
He made the pledge during campaign while unveiling his campaign policy document in Abuja.
Tinubu said, “my administration would ensure the reduction of waste in the civil services if he succeeds Buhari in 2023.”
“We will continue the work of the current administration in reforming the civil service to fight corruption, reduce bureaucracy, streamline agencies and decrease inefficiency and waste,” the document reads in part.”
Tinubu has though been criticized for being corrupt and accumulating untraceable wealth.

Many times, before his emergency as the President, the former Lagos state governor had refused to respond to queries on the ownership of Alpha Beta, a private company that collects tax on behalf of the state for a percentage.
He is believed to have large shares in the company, which assumed Lagos tax administration under him as governor of Lagos State.
As the President, many feels uncomfortable with the way Tinubu is fighting corruption, while some see it as a good way to start.
To start with, the CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele has been suspended, the EFCC boss, Bawa AbdulRasheed has also been suspended along with others that engaged in corruption one way or the other.
It’s very advisable to permit Tinubu keep the ball rolling and let’s see how it ends, a commentator said on twitter.
