President Goodluck Jonathan has lashed out at critics calling them corrupt for accusing him of not fighting corruption.
He has also said that those who say his body language encourages corruption are only trying to claim an element of credibility.
The President made these statements shortly after swearing in the chairman and members of the National Population Commission; a member of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission and two special advisers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President said, “Anybody who wants to claim an element of credibility will go to the television and accuse government of corruption that the President’s body language shows that he is not fighting corruption or that he is not ready to fight corruption”.
“Sometimes, even the very corrupt people are those making these statements because if you attack government, you are insulated, you become an angel”, he said.
“If you want to be an angel, just attack the government, whatever you have done is covered”, he added.
