In an interview with The Nation, the former Commissioner for

Agriculture and Natural Resources in the defunct Bendel State said APC

senators were supposed to be working with the president not opposing

his moves.

He said the rejection of Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the Economic and

Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) indicated that the senators were

not interested in fighting corruption.

He said: "The APC as a party appears to be in government only and not

in politics. If they are in politics, some of them who grew wings in

the National Assembly wouldn't have been able to do so. Because the

APC is not in politics, it created a discounted tune between the

executive and the legislature. If the APC were in politiccs, they

would have known how to deal with the situation. The situation is not

legal, it is political. I am particularly pissed by the rejection of

Magu because Nigerains have never had it so good, in terms of recovery

of of stolen properties of the federal government, particularly money

before this time.

"The average Nigerian is in support of Magu and if there is a

referadum between Magu and those legislature, Magu will defect them.

Magu has not been caught stealing. He has only been blamed for some

ethical conduct like he lives in luxury. One of them was that he took

a first class flight to the hajj. That is not luxury. A person of his

status is entitled to take first class flight. When I was Commissioner

for Agriculture and Natural Resources in Bendel State, I took Fisrt

Class flight to Brazil, USA and Isreal. When you are in certain

position, you are entitiled to some things. Magu has not been caught

in an act of stealing or colloding with looters. They would have

alleged more serious things.

They have a right of rejection and the President has a right of

renomination. But, the President should pay some attention to

politics. It appears he has abandoned his party and the party has

become weakened in that process. He should dedicate 40 per cent of his

time to politics and 60 per cent to governance and for all Nigerians.

The President is from a political party. He must nurture the party and

strengthen it.

"Those APC senators are the ones fighting anti-corruption crusade.

Corruption is fighting back through the lawmakers. The President

should not listen to such demands.

They want to blackmail him. I do not see why people who belong to the

same party are not supporting the ideology and programme of that

party. If the APC is strong and really faces politics, such peole

should not be reelected. If it were in our time, we will make their

constituency hot for them and there is a way of doing it. If you make

their constituency ask them question; whether they are representing

Nigeria or their own interest. They are representing their own

interest and not Nigeria.

On whether President Buhari will succedd in his administration,

Osifo said: "He will suceeed with his economic policy. The only place

he is lacking is his political policies or refusing to turn the APC

into an idealogiccal group. If you hate wealth to the extent of not

using it for yourself, the party you lead should be that nobody who

loves personal wealth would like to enter such party. Many people want

to live simple lives than those who want to acquire primitive wealth.

I said Buhari will succeed because you will disover that all

contractors that abandon projects across the country have returned to

site. He has paid the mobilisation fee for the second Niger Bridge

that eluded previous governments for 16 years. When he was away,

everything was going on smoothly as if he was around. From all

indications, Buhari is bound to succeed.
