Human rights lawyer Femi Falana, has asked President Bola Tinubu to refrain from sending the wrong signal, saying there have been several high-profile politicians with looting cases in court who have been visiting the Presidential Villa.
He said this while delivering a keynote speech at the 60th call to bar anniversary celebration of legal icon, Aare Afe Babalola, in Ado Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State.
Falana argued that with the President leading the anti-corruption crusade, Nigeria could “take its rightful place in the comity of nations”, as the largest concentration of black people on earth.
Also Speaking, Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, says Nigerians witnessed the worst phase of corruption under the last administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Kukah noted that a lot of Nigerians have lost faith in the judiciary but added that he considers the judiciary a victim the same way every other institution in Nigeria is suffering a crisis.
