Concerned Nigerians have taken to the streets of Lagos, protesting that President Buhari should jail Okonjo Iweala who was the former minister of finance and coordinating minister of the economy.
Surprisingly, CAN President, Ayo Oritsejafor, was part of that list with other officials who served during the Goodluck Jonathan regime.
They urged the president that, putting individuals who embezzled funds behind bars would do Nigeria good and increase the public’s confidence in President Buhari.
The protesters, who walked from the popular Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Park in Ojota at about 10 am to the bridge at Obafemi Awolowo way in Ikeja, specifically demanded the investigation and prosecution of Okonjo-Iweala, the finance minister in the Jonathan’s administration.
The group of concerned citizens considers her to be one of those most responsible for the drainage of the national treasury. In their opinion, another person who deserves to be put behind bars immediately is the head of the Christian Association of Nigeria pastor Ayo Oritsejafor.
“We are impressed and want the probes to begin. Nigeria’s wealth has long been drained and millions of people are rendered unnecessarily poor. So we support President Muhammadu Buhari on his mission to prosecute corrupt persons and return discipline into the body polity.”
