President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration will ensure effective asset declaration by public office holders and ensure sanctions by professional bodies against lawyers, bankers, brokers, public officials, and other individuals facilitating corrupt practices.
The president gave this assurance while speaking at the National Democracy Day Anti-Corruption Summit in Abuja on Tuesday.
Buhari said the government would also close existing legislative loopholes, facilitate collaboration with the judiciary, and strengthen the criminal justice system for effective fight against corruption in the country.
While ensuring comprehensive support and protection to whistle-blowers, witnesses and victims of corruption, the president said his administration would adopt and formulate the policy of ‘naming and shaming’ all those who engage in corrupt practices.
The Guest Speaker at the event and former Director of Kenya’s Anti-Corruption Commission, Patrice Lumumba lauded Nigeria’s strategies in fighting corruption, as he described the Nigeria’s EFCC as the best anti-corruption agency across the African continent.
