Charly Boy group announces sit-outs to protest alleged corruption in Buhari’s government

A Nigerian musician and leader of an activist group,’Our Mumu Don Do‘, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has said his group would commence a daily protest to force President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle corruption allegations levelled against top members of his government.

Some top officials of the administration including the currently suspended Secretary to the State Government, Babachir Lawal, and recently, the head of the nation’s oil firm, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru, have been accused of corrupt acts with many Nigerians believing that Mr. Buhari has not been decisive enough in tackling graft in his own inner circle.

A Nigerian senator, Shehu Sani, a member of the president’s party had recently criticised the administration for being soft on corrupt officials of the government but acting quickly on members of the opposition when accused of same offences.

In a statement by the group, Monday, signed by Deji Adeyanju, Bako Abdul Usman, Ariyo Atoye, and Moses Paul, it said it would commence a daily sit-out at the Unity Fountain, Abuja, from Tuesday to highlight the tardiness of the Buhari led government in prosecuting alleged corrupt officers of the government.

The statement explained how, 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 with no corresponding response from the government.
