We won’t give up anti-corruption war – Osinbajo

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the Federal Government will not relent in its anti-corruption battle.

He said the anti-corruption crusade embarked upon by President Muhammadu Buhari was not meant to intimidate anybody in the country as being insinuated in some quarters.

Osinbajo, who stated this in a chat with some journalists on Friday at a burial ceremony of a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the late Mrs. Janet Oladoye, in Ilara-Mokin, Ondo State, accused the Peoples Democratic Party of trying to prevent the anti-corruption war.

The Vice-President, who was welcomed at the event by a large crowd of residents of the town and members of the APC from the 18 local government area of the state amid tight security, explained that the anti-corruption crusade was not designed to intimidate any politician.

According to him, the list of the people who have been arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission so far shows that the anti-corruption war is not a witch-hunt.

He, however, said that anyone found guilty of corruption would be made to face the wrath of the law irrespective of his status.
