Delay tactics hampering war on corruption - Buhari

19 July 2016, 08:33

Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday expressed his concern at the delay tactics adopted by judicial officers and lawyers in the fight against corruption and bringing those suspected of corruption to justice, Vanguard reports.

Buhari added that cases ending up as inconclusive sent out a negative message that acts of crime was a venture worth taking. Adding that the war on corruption had been given a priority by his administration and urged all hands to be on deck.

"The judiciary should be in the forefront of efforts to develop rights-based jurisprudence as an element in the multi-disciplinary approach advocated in the fight against corruption. It does have a role to play in the fight against corruption by enforcing the applicable laws," Buhari said.

Buhari also urged law officers to fulfil their duties with a high level of integrity and independence.

News24 Nigeria reported that Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose lashed out at Buhari claiming that he is using an "equally corrupt" Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to do his bidding.

Stating that the President should start the war against corruption within his own party, Fayose kicked back at the EFCC, demanding that they take suspects to court instead of subjecting them to "media trial".
