Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana has advised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu not to allow corrupt persons with outstanding cases before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC) in and out of Aso Villa.

The Activist warned that Nigeria had yet put its ugly past behind it, especially with its level of corruption that has tarnished the international image of the country.

According to him: “They steal money meant for the control of erosion. The President must show leadership. I am urging Tinubu to lead an anti-corruption crusade so that Nigeria can take its rightful place in the comity of nations.”

The SAN advised that Nigeria should go back to the era no appointment to a position of authority for any public officer with outstanding case before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC),

“Some of those who are going in and out of the Villa are standing trial for looting the treasury of this country. So, wrong signals must not be sent to our people and the international community,” the senior lawyer said.

“There is somebody here who was our president,” Falana said, “If you were accused of corruption and your case was before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC), you would not be appointed to a position of authority. We must go back to that era.”
