SAN urges President Tinubu to Probe past Administration

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Wole Olanipekun, immediate past Chairman of the Nigerian Body of Benchers on Friday, adduced reasons why President Bola Tinubu should probe all the past administrations.

According to him, examination and audit of all books and records, as well as past expenditures, would provide an insight into

“why the economy is grounded; why the refineries have collapsed in spite of billions, if not trillions of Naira that have been allegedly expended at refurbishing them.”

He said: “Let us remind ourselves that we cannot make omelet without breaking eggs. What do I mean? The President has to ask questions, and sordid questions indeed, about how we have come to this sorry pass; why we are in a big mess; why the economy is grounded; what have happened to the previous budgets and the trillions of Naira allocated to road rehabilitation, healthcare delivery, security, infrastructural rehabilitation, institutional restoration, etc.

“Why have our airports, particularly the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, which is our gateway to the outside world, plunged into such a shambolic state, constituting an eyesore to any rational human being- despite the billions of Naira purportedly earmarked and expended towards rehabilitating them; why our youths and professionals of all cadres, at their prime, exiting the country in droves (JAPA) in search of golden fleece which does/do not even exist in several instances.

“For example, it is now common knowledge that many Nigerians are left destitute without jobs, after travelling to the United Kingdom.
