This according to the Executive Director of Campaign Against Impunity and Domestic Violence, (CAIDOV),Gbenga Soloki, is the only way to convince Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress, APC led government is serious about its anti corruption campaign.

In a press release, CAIDOV posited that for the change to be effective and productive, public officials, at all levels, must substantially reduce their allowances in tune with the current economic realities, and as such show exemplary leadership to show that government is serious about its “the change begins with you” programme.

According to CAIDOV “while we are aware of the wanton looting of the immediate past government, especially as revealed by anti-graft agencies, and the inability to ensure efficient management of resources then, which invariably has led to the present economic crises, the Buhari led administration must show exemplary leadership by way of cutting its allowances to justify the call on Nigerians to tighten their belt.”

Continuing, the group enjoined the president and his cabinet members, national assembly members and other government officials, to “in the spirit of the austere period, reduce allowances to augment the national income. ”

The group maintained that only a decisive action coupled with sincerity on the part of the present government can lead to prosperity of the nation, while it appealed to the people to join hands with the government in the ongoing fight against corruption.
CAIDOV stressed that” if corrupt practises are reduced or stopped, definitely, available resources can be channeled towards profitable ventures.”
