An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has accused a former president, Olusegun Obasanjo and an ex-minister of education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, of influencing the recent corruption ranking of Nigeria by Transparency International.
Laureta Onochie in a Twitter post through her handle described Obasanjo and Ezekwesili as two angry birds who founded the Transparency International.
Onochie urged Nigerians not to listen to the duo with their perceived bias of the President Buhari-led administration.

Onochie further said that President Buhari is the undisputed anti-corruption champion of Africa.
