Martin Amidu says Africa must draw inspiration from the victory of Muhammadu Buhari and sack corrupt leaders.
Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu has urged African countries to use the recent election of General Muhammadu Buhari as President-elect of Nigeria, as an inspiration for a renaissance to start booting out corrupt leaders on the Continent.
Describing Buhari’s victory as “a victory of hope and transformation”, the former Attorney General said he prays the former military leader’s election “will translate into the beginning of a new renaissance in the sub-region and the whole of the African continent for a new democracy in which wanton corruption, abuse of power, lack of transparency in governance, deceit of the citizenry, ineptitude, ethnicity and impunity by some African Governments will one by one be voted out of power by the awakened people learning from this great example of the people of Nigeria in the just concluded elections.”
“This is a period of great enthusiasm and hope, not only for the people of Nigeria but also for those of us in the sub-region and Africa in general,” Mr Amidu said in a statement issued Wednesday.
“I have no doubt that with the wise decision of the Nigerian people in electing General Muhammadu Buhari as President of the Federal Republic, integrity, incorruptibility, probity and accountability in the Nigeria body politics will soon be restored,” he added.
