A former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has knocked President Muhammadu Buhari for not taking action on the certificate forgery scandal involving finance minister, Kemi Adeosun.
Abubakar also flayed the president for not punishing officials involved in the controversial recall of fugitive civil servant, Abdulrasheed Maina, last year.
In a statement by Abubakar’s media adviser, Paul Ibe, on Thursday, the former said with those unresolved issues bogging his presidency, Buhari cannot lay claim to being “uncompromising”.
The government did not resolve any of the scandals or punish those involved.
In October, Maina, who was dismissed from service for refusing to answer to summons on corruption charges, was secretly reinstated into the civil service.
Nigeria’s Attorney General, Abubakar Malami, was later discovered to have played central role in Maina’s recall. He also frustrated an attempt by members of the National Assembly to probe the scandal.
He also questioned why action was not taken on Malami for his roles in the MainaGate.
Despite widespread public uproar over the two scandals, the Buhari administration remained unperturbed over the two clear cases of fraudulent acts.
