Probe Fashola, Group urges Buhari




A civil society organisation, the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to probe the immediate past overnment of Lagos state which was headed by former Gov. Raji Fashola instead of elevating him to serve in his cabinet.

The group made their position known in the letter titled: ‘Prosecute Mr. Babatunde Fashola; Don’t Elevate Him – An Appeal For President To Prevail On Anti-corruption Agencies To Do The Needful On Our Evidence-based Petitions’, and signed by the group’s executive chairman, Debo Adeniran.

The letter reads thus: “Your Excellency Sir, it’s gratifying that you have promised at various fora that, having recognised the need to ensure that square pegs are put in square holes, your appointments were going to be purely on merit and that tested technocrats, with impeccable records, would be given their rightful places in your administration, as a way of ensuring good governance to the people of Nigeria.

It is against this background that our organisation is appealing to you to please take the pains to dig deep into Mr. Babatunde Fashola’s record of overall performance as well as that of financial propriety on the part of his government while in office.”

The group equally urged President Buhari to compel othe Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) to act on the several petitions sent to them against governor Fashola
