Abiodun Olasupo, a member of the house of representatives, says the measures being used to combat corruption were developed by the Goodluck Jonathan administration.

Speaking at the inauguration of projects in his constituency on Friday, Olasupo said the Jonathan administration lacked the political will to implement them.

The lawmaker who represents Iseyin/Iwajowa/Kajola/Itesiwaju federal constituency of Oyo state said results could be seen since the Muhammadu Buhari administration came on board to implement the polices.

“You should not be surprised that all the measures used in the anti-corruption crusade today were developed by President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration,” he said.

“The Jonathan administration developed the policies  of whistle blowing, Bank Verification Number (BVN), Treasury Single Account (TSA) but lacked  the political will to implement them.

“You can see that the implementation by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is bringing the desired results.”

Olasupo also said that if an analysis was done, it would be seen that the national assembly is the one of the most underfunded arms of government.

“When you look into the budget and do the analysis properly, I am sure you will believe that the National Assembly is one of the most poorly funded arms of this government,” he said.

“For the first time in the history of the nation, the eighth National Assembly made the details of the  budget public and you will see a budget of economic recovery.

“The old, present and future national assembly members should know that legislatures the world over cannot win popularity contest when it comes to budgeting.”
