President Muhammadu Buhari’s clamp down on looters may be getting some extra push after what has been considered an endorsement from General Abdulsalam Abubakar and the National Peace Committee.
Meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Abubakar and members of the committee appear to be in full swing in the anti-graft war.

The committee included President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, the Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, most Reverend Nicholas Okoh; and the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, amongst others.
According to reports, the idea behind the meeting was to consider means through which to bring those guilty of looting the economy to book.
But in spite of this, there have been calls from the committee asking that the Buhari-led campaign follows due process.
Contrary to wide speculations, however, the committee has denied claims that it was meeting with the president behind closed doors to help the Goodluck Jonathan administration mend fences with the present government, given what has been considered by many as a lax, unaccountable time in office.
