The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP, has called on President Bola Tinubu to reduce cases of corruption and abuse of office among ministers and civil servants for the masses to breathe.
The group, in an open letter addressed to the President dated January 8 and released in Lagos on Monday, said the CNPP listened to Tinubu’s New Year message and observed the various responses from Nigerians to all promises.
The letter, titled “Reduce Corruption in Your Administration”, was signed by Oloye Adegboyega-Adeniji, the Secretary General of South-West CNPP.
Adegboyega-Adeniji tasked Tinubu not to forget years of struggle as a veteran activist and opposition leader from the days of Gen. Ibrahim Babangida’s transition process that culminated in the annulment of the June 12, 1993, general elections.
The letter read in part, “We members of the CNPP in the South West admonish you not to forget the years of struggles, in the company of our national chairman, Alhaji Balarabe Musa of blessed memory, to foster and sustain our nascent democracy.”
The CNPP chieftain advised the President to set a worthy example to reduce corruption while also compelling civil and public servants to step aside from public office pending outcomes of all investigations.
