Chief Whip of the Senate, Mohammed Ali Ndume, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to sign an Executive Order on Unexplained Wealth that will empower anti-graft agencies to go after Nigerians with unexplained wealth.
The Borno South senator also commended the President’s recent action wherein he ordered that all revenues from sale of crude oil be deposited into an account with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Ndume, speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday, said if President Tinubu is serious about tackling the menace of corruption, he must sign the Executive Order as soon as possible. He said people, especially the political class, must explain their sources of wealth or forfeit the same to the government.
“The next thing now, if President Tinubu wants to fight corruption, would be to sign an Executive Order on Unexplained Wealth in this country. Let all these people explain where they got their money, including myself.People should stop talking about trivialities or personal issues; they should talk about national issues,” Ndume stated
