Corrupt politicians and individuals will have a hard time with their loots henceforth as President Buhari in line with its anti-corruption strategy, has declared national emergency on corruption by signing  an executive order into law to ensure that justice is not defeated or compromised by persons involved in a case or complaint of corruption.

The Executive Order No. 6 of 2018, seeks to inter alia restrict dealings in suspicious assets subject to investigation or inquiry bordering on corruption in order to preserve such assets from dissipation, and to deprive alleged criminals of the proceeds of their illicit activities which can otherwise be employed to allure, pervert and/or intimidate the investigative and judicial processes. Or for acts of terrorism, financing of terrorism, kidnapping, sponsorship of ethnic or religious violence, economic sabotage and cases of economic and financial crimes, including acts contributing to the economic adversity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and against the overall interest of justice and the welfare of the Nigerian State.

Indeed, the President has done well. I agree with him that there is a very strong link between corruption, peace and security. The proceeds of corruption had been used to undermine the growth of the economy, and heighten the insecurity in the country.

Without doubt, Corruption is everywhere; at all levels of government, and every stratum of our society. And the fight against corruption would be difficult except institutions, agencies and policies are strengthened.

Above all, individuals ( you and I) must own the fight to reverse the negative culture of pilfering public funds, or risk plunging the country into turmoil.

Let's Join Hands and build a better Nigeria of our dream!
