Ohanaeze youths asks Buhari, Bawa to jail political looters before 2023
The Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has called for the prosecution of political looters in Nigeria.
The Igbo youth group said the best thing President Muhammadu Buhari could do for Nigerians to leave an indelible mark is to jail all political looters in the country before he leaves office in 2023.
In addition, the Igboayaka-led Ohanaeze Youth Council, in a statement forwarded to the Naijacrawl on Tuesday, also urged President Buhari to launch “Operation Financial Crime Clean-up” in Nigeria.
The group bemoaned the rate of impunity among political office holders and regretted that criminals ought to pay for their crimes.
The OYC also likened corrupt politicians who are guilty of embezzlement and all other forms of misappropriation of public funds amidst impunity to regular, fully armed criminals who steal without minding the consequences of their crime.
According to the youth body, "A government that is devoid of corruption is that government that has outright zero tolerance for crime and criminality, irrespective of whose 'ox is gored."
The Igbo youth organization explained that part of the reason for the agitation by pro-Biafran groups is that Igbo governors looted the local government funds meant for rural development in 1999 and left the people in abject poverty.
The Ohanaeze youths also reechoed the call on the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) to revisit the 7.1 billion money laundering case of the Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate and former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
According to the group, “the likes of Orji Uzor Kalu are the reason for unemployment, poverty and insecurity in the Southeast."
