Buhari’s government worsened corruption, chased off investors – Jonathan

Former President Goodluck Jonathan says his successor, President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, not only worsened the level of corruption in Nigeria but also chased away investors by de-marketing Nigeria abroad. According to the Punch, Jonathan added that rather than take Nigeria to the next level, the Buhari administration decided to engage in media trials which also worsened the corruption perception of Nigeria thereby leading to Nigeria’s slip in the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index. The former President said this in his recently published book titled, ‘My Transition Hours’. He said: “The sundry accusations by the new administration will appear to have baited the media. Media trials are entertaining but have little or no effect in fighting corruption an...
