Former Sokoto State Governor Attahiru Bafarawa yesterday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war is good for the country.
Bafarawa and his son are standing trial before an Abuja court over billions of money they allegedly received from the office of former National security Adviser Sambo Dasuki.
He spoke to journalists in Sokoto yesterday after he was granted bail by the court on Tuesday.
He however said he would not comment on the arms deals allegations since the matter was in court. “I have taken the matter as an act of God. I am happy that Allah has enabled me to take it as such,” he said.
The PDP chieftain urged Nigerians to support Buhari’s efforts to curb corruption.
He said corruption impacts negatively on socio-economic development of a nation.
“I also fought corruption to a standstill when I was a governor in Sokoto state between 1999 and 2007. That was why I was able to leave over N12 billion in the coffers of the state when I left office in 2007,” he said.
