Angered by the condemnations trailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s order that stopped some Nigerians from travelling abroad, the Buhari Campaign Orgainsation (BCO) has described as absurd the barrage of criticisms that dwarfed the benefits nearly 200 million Nigerians stand to gain.
President Buhari had slammed travel ban on 50 prominent Nigerians facing trial over corruption charges.
In a statement issued yesterday by its Director of Communication and Strategic Planning, Mallam Gidado Ibrahim, the BCO said only corrupt and criminal-minded persons would condemn the president’s effort to stop corrupt persons from escaping with looted funds.
The group said if the president’s directive on the full implementation of the Executive Order 6, recently validated by the court, would send shivers down the spines of the PDP and other opposition camps to the extent of generating negative reactions from them, then they truly had skeletons in their cupboard.
Urging Nigerians not to fall for the antics of the opposition, the BCO said it was only in Nigeria that corrupt persons would regroup to loot the country dry again and gullible persons whose future was stolen would be celebrating them.
