ABUJA, AUGUST 2, 2017 – President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki has admonished the presidency and anti-graft agencies to fight corruption and not just focus on recovery of loots.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, the Senate President said the National Assembly will help refocus the anti-corruption fight, which is only directed at recovery of stolen funds.
According to Saraki, “You see, let us separate recovery from fight against corruption.
“We still believe that yes, recoveries are being done, but are we doing anything to actively stop corruption going on now.
“This recovery has gone out there. They are two separate issues.
“The focus I am seeing is recovery, but corruption is still there.
“That is the area that we are focusing on as a Senate.
“Anybody that brings a case about what is happening now, we will go in, look at those agencies and expose them.
“We want to continue to represent the people in that way.”
