General Overseer of Latter Rain Assembly and Buhari's 2011 vice presidential run mate , Tunde Bakare has said integrity is not enough to fight corruption.He cautioned him on trying to appoint people of questionable character ,including some of those who facilitated his success.
“I congratulate Nigerians; we have chosen a man of integrity as our President. But integrity is not enough to run a government.May the good Lord surround the President-elect with men and women of goodwill, great intellectual capacity, competence and character to help restore our wasted years.
“I pray sincerely that not all those who facilitated his winning the election will be among those who run the government. I did say before the election that I trust the person of General Buhari but not all those around him.
“I mean every word of it because many of them are nothing but Ali Baba and 40 thieves. And if these are the same who would go into government, you can’t fight evil with evil. You can as well kiss the anti-corruption stance of Mr. President-elect goodbye. You don’t know how many applications are in my phone.
I am not the Vice-President; I am not looking for a job. They said ‘we know General Buhari listens to you; if I cannot get Minister of Works, maybe I will get Minister of Aviation’.
“The vultures are now going round and round. If he does not have quality people around him, then they will put round pegs in square holes and within two years, we are back to square one.”
