He said the ruling party would not allow the opposition to take advantage of the crisis to post serious challenge in the control of the state.

The APC leader, who lamented that that corruption has become an endemic national problem noted President Muhammad Buhari might not have appreciated the enormity of the challenge when he started to wage war against the menace in the society.

He said he did not envy President Buhari in the task of fighting corruption saying the Nigerian leader is already feeling the resulting heat because corruption is already fighting him back.

Akande, who expressed delight that the president had decimated Boko Haram and other insurgents inherited from the previous administration urged Nigerians to support the current administration in its effort to grow the nation’s economy.

“When President Buhari came up with his policy to fight against corruption, perhaps he might not know the likely attendant consequences. But I’m sure he is perspering seriously without people knowing it because corruption is already fighting back.”
