Buhari?s Only Achievement Is Declaration of Assets Says CDD

Buhari?s Only Achievement Is Declaration of Assets Says CDD Muhammadu Buhari
The Centre for Democracy and Development, CDD, has claimed that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has been able to achieve only one of 13 campaign promises he made to Nigerians.

The group made this disclosure in its February report on the performance level of the administration on corruption-related campaign promises made during the 2015 general elections.

According to the report, of the 13 specific campaign promises of Buhari to fight corruption in the country, he had only achieved one, which represents 7.7% of the 13 promises, being the official declaration of asset of the President and the Vice President.

“In addition, the government is in the process of achieving six promises, representing 46.2% of the anti-graft promises,” the report claimed.

According CDD, these include the implementation of some vital recommendations of the NEITI report, entrenchment of accountability mechanism among MDAs, audit of government workers to weed out ghost workers, reduction of cost of governance through stringent spending, banning of first class flight travel and presentation of national plan to fight corruption.

On the other hand, the group said noticeable actions were yet to be taken towards the achievement of six of its 13 promises, which represent 46.2% of government campaign promises on corruption.

In the report titled ‘Buharimeter: PMB Performance Report#Corruption,’ CDD also noted several concerns that may mar government’s effort in pursuing its anti-graft war in Nigeria.

According to the report, “the credibility of the anti-corruption war seems to be withering following the President’s approach to unravelling corrupt allegations against Babachir David Lawal (Secretary to the Government of the Federation) and Abba Kyari (Chief of Staff to the President).”
