A Chieftain of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Rivers State Sir Lucky Worluh yesterday accused treasury looters in the country and economic saboteur of being behind the alleged rumour that President Mohammadu Buhari is critically ill or death.
He said corrupt minded citizens of this country started their evil campaign from the day President Buhari was declared as the Presidential candidate of APC, adding that some of them protested his candidacy alleging that he will die on seat like the former President Yar’Adua.
Worluh who was speaking yesterday as a guest speaker at the two-day submit organized by the Ikwerre Youths Movement (IYM) in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, said until Nigerians show a great wiliness to support the fight against corruption, treasury looters will continue to openly celebrate.
He said the rumour on President Buhari’s health is a clear indication of how much corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of the nation.
Worluh who is also the President of Alice Worluh’s Widows Foundation called on the youths of Nigeria to hate corruption and corrupt practitioners instead of celebrating them like kings because of what they intend to gain from them.
Worluh said: “As far as I’m concern those rumouring about President Buhari’s health are treasury looters including those sabotaging the economy of this Nation. They became restless from the day President Buhari won election because their lives revolve around corruption.
“They are not only fighting President Buhari but all those who believe and supporting the anti-corruption crusade. Recently, some people went to the media to attack the Obong Esima Ekere led Board of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) because they failed to compromise as usual.
“We must learn to kill corruption by hating the treasury looters. You can imagine what is happening today, when people are praying for their president, looters are celebrating their death. I would say it President Buhari, because it is unbelievable when you listen what people are saying.”
