Looters list should cut across parties, says Ex-ICPC Chairman

A former President, Appeal Court and past Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission (ICPC) Retired Justice Mustapha Akanbi has called on the Federal Government to as a matter of priority release more names of anybody that has looted the government treasury irrespective of party affiliations.

Justice Akanbi said the naming of corrupt Nigerians must cut across all political parties in order to give credibility to President Muhammadu Buhari led administration’s efforts in fighting corruption.

Justice Akanbi made his position known during an interview with journalists shortly after a special prayer organised for him by members of Muslim Charitable Women Association of Nigeria founded by the wife of the Emir of Ilorin, Hajia Rafat Zulu Gambari at Justice Akanbi residence, Agba-dam, G.R.A, Ilorin.

According to him, the announcement of those who looted government money should not be limited to members of the opposition party (PDP) alone but should cut across members of the ruling party if government is sincere about fighting the war against corruption.

Justice Akanbi who said the release of looters of Nigerian funds was long over due, stated that naming of corrupt Nigerians would give people the confidence that the present administration is committed to eradicating corruption.
