Author urges Buhari to continue fight against corruption


An Author, Dr  , has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to be distracted on his avowed resolve to fight corruption in the country.

Orabuchi gave the advice while speaking in Enugu on Tuesday. Orabuchi is the author of the Book, “Views from America: A Sojourner’s Memoirs – A Repertoire of Action for Nigeria’s Development.”

Orabuchi is an adjunct Professor at Paul Quinn College, Texas State, U.S. He expressed confidence in the potential of every Nigerian to join forces with the government of the day in ensuring a more secured country with a robust economy.

The scholar said his numerous articles were aimed at ensuring dedication and service as key ingredients to the cause of nation building.

Orabuchi called, however, called for a paradigm shift from a mono-economy to a diversified economy where industrial growth and expansion would shore-up the revenue base of the nation.

On the political arena, the don said that there was a need for overhaul of the current local government system in Nigeria to engender a bottom-up development, starting from the grassroots.

He also urged the governors to do a lot to strengthen the revenue base of their states and council areas.

On his book which he said would be officially unveiled on Dec. 28, Orabuchi in Owerri,said that the book would provide a window for an unbiased rating of government’s performance.

“The book is also a leeway to Nigeria’s socio-political and economic recovery,’’ he said.

Orabuchi said that the 253- page book, consisting of 11 chapters, expressed the dire need to create employment for young people in the country.

“We cannot resign ourselves to losing a generation of young people who do not have the dignity of work.”

The book was edited by Edwin Nwachukwu, a Senior Editor in NAN; whose experience in journalism spans over two decades.
