A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross Rivers state, Barrister Utu Eteng, has declared that he has been in a sober mode for sometime now because of the level of gang-up against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking in an interview with Daily Independent, Eteng accused corrupt elements in the country as being responsible for the gang-up churning out unfounded information.
“I must confess to you that I am in a very sober mode. Sober in the sense that there are so many unfounded insinuations being made against the office and person in the office of the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“There are clear indications that there is a gang up but one thing is very certain, the president is doing his best to ensure that we can recover this country.
“We have to recover this country from the hands of notorious looters, from the hands of people who have, over years lived principally on our common wealth without ever doing any job; people who have shared much of the property belonging to this country.
“People who are afraid of being apprehended; people who have built fantastic houses in Abuja but they are now afraid to go near those houses.
“Accumulation of all these group of persons I have categorised, have ganged up, to give, literally, ‘a dog a bad name; and attempt to hang it’.
“It is an aspect, or in other words, the expected aspect of the fight back of corruption.
“People are fighting back and using all manner of means to fight back because they have been discovered. And the president has been persistent and consistent as well as determined in this war and crusade against corruption.
