Buhari busy pursuing looters, those of us who did not steal will suffer – Pastor Ashimolowo
punishment upon those Nigerians who are not corrupt.
Ashimowlo advised President Muhammadu Buhari to adopt the ‘Pareto’s Principle’ in governance.
He said the president should adopt the principle, in which just 20% of governance time is dedicated to the past, “otherwise, it will take forever for majority of Nigerians to see changes.”
The cleric noted that going by principle, the federal government should dedicate 20% of its resources to going after perceived looters, while 80 per cent should be given to creating an enabling environment for the citizens.
Ashimolowo disclosed this while speaking to journalists at the 10th edition of the annual widows new year party in Ode-Omu, Osun state.
He said: “President Buhari is a man of great integrity, who wants the best for the country. But if he spends all his time pursuing looters, the majority of us who did not steal will suffer.
“Therefore, he must use the Parento’s Principle to approach governance. If you have your eyes permanently on the rear view mirror, you cannot drive fast. The past deserves just 20 per cent attention.”
