Some civil society groups, including the Charles Oputa-led Our Mumu Don Do Movement, have launched a ‘Buhari must act or quit’ protest, in a bid to pressure President Muhammadu Buhari to probe corruption allegations involving top officials of his government.
This new protest is coming after the coalition’s ‘Resume or Resign’ protest held during President Buhari’s lengthy medical vacation in London, garnering much attention from around the country, and met with forceful reaction from the Police, and strong criticism by officials of the administration.
In a statement on Sunday, the groups announced that from Tuesday, their members would begin a daily sit-out at the Unity Fountain Abuja.
The statement was signed by Charles Oputa of Our Mumu Don Do Movement; Deji Adeyanju of Concerned Nigerians; Ariyo Atoye, Coalition in Defence Of Nigerian Democracy; and Bako Usman of Campaign For Democracy.
They said they would continue to push until the President looked into the allegations against Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC; Babachir Lawal, suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation; Ayo Oke, Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), among others.
“Over the course of the last 29 months, several allegations of corruption, mismanagement of public funds, and outright looting of the national treasury have surfaced against top officials of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari”, the statement read.
“Recently, a letter written by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Mr. Ibe Kachikwu, to President Buhari was leaked. In it, Mr. Kachikwu alleged that the Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, had entered into contracts worth $25bn (Twenty five Billion Dollars), without following due process, and in contravention of the provisions of the NNPC Act, Public Procurement Act, and other regulations governing the process for committing the Federal Government to contracts.
“Prior to the monumental allegations of corruption in the leaked letter, several other allegations of corruption and outright looting of the national treasury had surfaced against other top officials of the Buhari administration. These include: “The $43m found in the Osborne Apartments, allegedly stolen and hidden by the suspended Director of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayo Oke.
“The mismanagement and theft of funds meant for the welfare of people displaced by the ongoing war against Boko Haram in the North-Eastern part of the country, by the suspended Secretary General of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal, to the tune of N270m (Two Hundred & Seventy Million Naira).


“Allegations of bribery to the tune of N120bn (One Hundred and Twenty Billion Naira) against the Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Navy, Senator Isah Missau.
“Allegations of corrupt enrichment made by the Ekiti State House of Assembly against the Minister of Mines & Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to the tune of N40bn (Forty Billion Naira)”, it stated.
The statement added that, while Nigerians expected Buhari to take action, the President did otherwise.
“During the course of these weighty allegations, Nigerians had expected that President Buhari would fulfil his campaign promises of fighting corruption, by ensuring the swift investigation, arrest, and prosecution of any person so suspected of looting the public treasury. We are however, dismayed by the apathy displayed in this regard by the Federal Government”, the statement read further.
“Instead, the reports of the investigation of some of these allegations have been totally ignored by the President. In other cases, these officials seek to use the apparatus of the Nigerian State, to silence these allegations and stifle their investigation and prosecution. An example is an application made by the Inspector-General of Police before a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, seeking an order restraining the Senate from investigating the allegations of bribery made against him.
“In the light of these disturbing developments and the insouciance of the Federal Government in fighting them, we shall commence a daily sit out at the Unity Fountain, Abuja, from Tuesday, October 17, 2017, to highlight these allegations of corruption against these and other top officials of the Buhari administration, and strongly demand that President Buhari takes action against them in line with his anti-corruption campaign. The sit out will commence from 9:00 am, and will hold daily until the President moves to decisively tackle these issues.
“We invite all Nigerians to participate in this sit out, to compel the Federal Government to put a halt to the looting of the public purse, and to prosecute all those found culpable of corruption”, it concluded.
