Professor of law and chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay, says that Nigeria would have collapsed if Bubari had not intervened. He said this at the presentation of the committee’s report on a new legal framework for fighting corruption Monday; October 17, 2016.
“We know of some governors who are not supposed to be there, but found themselves on the seats with the help of some judges, if Buhari had not come, I don’t think there would have been a country. Zimbabwe would have been better. No agency would have dared to arrest Oputa, Obaseki, Eso, and some others. The government is operating on a zero budget. The moral authority of the golden era of the Supreme Court has crashed. No judge should be guilty of corruption; if that happens then they have reduced themselves to our level, so they should take whatever happens. Let us be fair to this country.”
