Money Grew Feet And Ran Faster Than Usain Bolt Under Jonathan - Tinubu
Usain Bolt may arguably be the world's fastest runner, but the speed at which he moves is nothing compared to how fast money ran under the Goodluck Jonathan administration.
This is according to the All Progressives Congress chieftain, Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu, has once gain taken a swipe at the administration of former President Jonathan.
The former Lagos state governor said the defunct administration used public treasury as a private hedge fund or a charity that limited its giving only to themselves.
“So much money grew feet and ran faster than Jamaican runner, Usain Bolt, ever could. That which could have been spent on national development was squandered in ways that would cause the devil to blush.
“One minister and her rogues’ gallery picked the pocket of this nation for billions of dollars.
“While poor at governance, these people could give a master thief lessons in the sleight of hand. In governance, they earned a red card but in the corruption, they won the gold medal.
“It was not that our institutions had become infected by corruption. Corruption has become institutionalized,’’
According to him, should the government had remained in power, Boko Haram would have taken more territory and devoured more people.
He said that the “war on corruption has been won as President Buhari has set an axe to what he called, “the root of this dangerous tree.”
Tinubu noted that, “gone are the days when a minister can pilfer billions of dollars as easy as plucking a piece of candy from the table.’’
