Falana Criticises Buhari’s Anti-Corruption War

Femi Falana, a famous Lagos lawyer, has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption strategy.

Falana, who is also one of the key critics of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan's government, has suggested that GEJ fought corruption in more civilized ways than Buhari.

The Lagos lawyer in a Channels TV programme said that: "contrary to the general belief that former President closed his eyes to corruption, President Goodluck Jonathan did so much in the fight against corruption including the sack of three of his ministers for alleged graft.”
