Falana urges Tinubu not to shield corrupt politicians

Written by on July 11, 2023

Human rights lawyer Femi Falana, SAN, is asking President Bola Tinubu to desist from sending the wrong signal by shielding corrupt politicians.

Falana says there have been several high-profile politicians with looting cases in court who have been visiting the Presidential Villa.

Falana who declared that the country is in trouble appeals to the President and his government to show leadership.
Connectedly, the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, is saying that Nigerians witnessed the worst phase of corruption under the last administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said this while delivering a keynote speech at the 60th call to bar anniversary celebration of legal icon, Afe Babalola, in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State.

Bishop Kukah notes that even though corruption did not start under the last administration, they amplified it in moral, financial and other terms.

The clergyman laments that Nigeria was sharing its sovereignty, which is guaranteed in the constitution with bandits and other terrorists.

He says nobody is excited now about being a Nigerian even if they are President or Senators, as the country is literally being held hostage by people who threaten the very existence of its democracy.
