IBB: Corruption under Buhari worse than when I was in power

Former Military President Ibrahim Babaginda says he fought corruption better than President Muhammadu Buhari and other democratic leaders.

The former president said this in an interview granted to ARISE TV on Friday.

He said people who worked under him are saints compared to those currently in power.

The military leader said while he moved against a former military governor who embezzled N313,000, those who stole billions are currently walking freely.

Asked if he agrees that corruption thrived under his administration, IBB said, “You can’t compare it with the facts on the ground now. From what I read, from analysis, I think we are saints when compared with what is happening under a democratic dispensation.

“I sacked a governor for stealing or misappropriating less than N313,000 but today, those who have stolen billions and are in court are parade themselves on the streets. So who is better at fighting corruption?”

IBB also said he has a very good relationship with Buhari, blaming the seeming rift between them on the media.
