The Non-Academic Staff Union of educational associated institutions (NASU) has called on the Federal Government to establish special courts in the country to trial corrupt persons.

NASU also advised the diversification of nation’s economy by going back to agriculture, saying if given serious attention, it would create over 70 percent jobs for the unemployed youth.

NASU Chairman, Comrade Wakili Tijani, said this in an address he presented during the regular meeting of Research and Projects Trade Group Council held at Scientific Equipment Development Institute (SEDI), Enugu.

He commended the Federal Government for efforts in sustaining the anti-corruption war and expressed dismay that over the years, the resources meant for the country’s development have been misappropriated by those trusted in the position of authority.

According to him, “corruption has negatively affected the nation’s economy, one of which is the ongoing trial of the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd), over alleged mismanagement of $2.1 billion meant for purchase of arms to fight insurgency in the North-East of the country.”
