IF NOT FOR BUHARI, ZIMBABWE WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER THAN NIGERIA – PROF ITSE SAGAY

 

The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Professor Itse Sagay, on Monday declared that Nigeria would have collapsed if President Muhammadu Buhari had not emerged to intervene in the happenings in the country.

 

He made this known after a presentation of the committee’s report on a new legal framework for fighting‎ corruption, which was set up by the president in August, 2015.

 

Sagay said, “We know of some governors who are not supposed to be there, but found themselves on the bloody seats with the help of some judges.

 

“If Buhari had not come, I don’t think there would have been a country. Zimbabwe would have been better. The government is operating on a zero budget.

 

“We need the judiciary, but we need an upright judiciary. If we don’t have a judiciary with moral integrity, then we don’t have a democracy.

 

“No agency would have dared to arrest Oputa, Obaseki, Eso, and some others. They gave judgments against the military governments. The moral authority of the golden era of the Supreme Court has crashed.

 

“No judge should be guilty of corruption; if that happens then they have reduced themselves to our level, so they should take whatever happens. Let us be fair to this country.”

 

The Department of State Services, DSS, had recently arrested some judges across the country over allegations of corruption, but they were later released.
