Secretary Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Senator Lawal Shuaibu has said that the emerging All Progressive Congress (APC) will fight corruption frontally if it emerged the ruling party come 2015.
Shuaibu who spoke at the ACN convention in the United States, identified corruption as the major problem confronting Nigeria adding that the APC leadership will plug all the leakages.
“The bedrock of the genesis for Nigeria’s inability to sustain developments has always been identified to be corruption. The progressives, in the process of founding APC resolved to fight corruption frontally. We shall plug all the leakages that accelerate monumental corruption and recover looted funds while we also intend to cap up and trim down unwarranted allowances to public servants”, he said.
The secretary said the course of history has placed on all true patriots, the enormous task of building a better Nigeria, which demands that patriotic men and women of finest disposition must come together in the search for a new economic, social and political order that is woven around sustainable development, enduring peace and mutual co-existence.
He said that Nigerians in Diaspora will be prime movers when it comes to execution of the policies of the new Party.
“Diaspora Nigerians are very educated, with exposure that transcends our local experiences, and they are professionals from whom other countries have been greatly benefiting due largely to the absence of conducive atmosphere back home”, he said, adding that no sensible leader in Nigeria or anywhere can afford to ignore his people in the Diaspora who have excelled in everything to the advantage of their host countries.
