Speaker urges Buhari to seek National Assembly cooperation in fight against corruption
The Speaker of the Kwara state House of Assembly, Dr. Ali Ahmad has warned that the war against corruption by President Muhammadu Buhari may not successfully be won if he continues to treat the leadership and members of the National Assembly with disdain.
Ahamad spoke at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) organised lecture entitled “War on corruption: Role of the media in implementation of Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015”.
He said, ‘this war on corruption as presently being fought, may not be won, am afraid to say. Am raising the alarm so that we all ponder to reconsider the current strategy. Remember raising the alarm on August 16 about the absence of an Attorney-General of the Federation and the implication on the anti corruption war; i reasoned then that even if other ministers would wait, the Attorney-General is the only constitutionally mentioned in Section 150 of the constitution and that he alone could have been appointed while others waited.
