Senate President Bukola Saraki has advised the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and the anti-graft agencies to focus more on stopping corruption in public offices than dedicate time on recoveries alone.
He said that he had stopped collecting the pension due to him as the former governor of Kwara State, following complaints by some civil society organisations that some former governors in the Senate were collecting both their pension and allowances from the National Assembly.
Saraki gave the advice while featuring on the News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja Tuesday.
Saraki said the anti-corruption fight being prosecuted was only directed at the recovery of stolen funds and promised that the National Assembly would help to re-focus the campaign.
According to him, although recovery is good, it will make no sense to allow more money to be looted only to begin another phase of recoveries.
