Arrest of judges 'vindicates' Wada position on judiciary

11 October 2016, 06:27

Kogi State - Former Kogi State, Idris Wada, feels vindicated by the crackdown on judges by the State Security Services saying it justified his calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to probe the judiciary.

“This is indeed a clear confirmation of my earlier alarm that things had fallen apart in the judiciary and my admonition to President Buhari to commence his anti-corruption fight from the third arm of government,” he said on Monday.

Wada said from “what has been seen in recent times” it would appear that the greatest obstacle to the Buhari administration was the corruption in the judiciary.

He however warned against a blanket judgment on judges, claiming some were ethical.

“Whoever said the entire judicial arm of government is corrupt will be uncharitable to the revered profession. The bench parades some of the best brains and first class patriots that the nation can go to war with,” said Wada.

Wada was governor from 2012-2016.

He lost the election to Yahaya Bello.
