Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption is total, comprehensive and dispassionate without political or ethnic sentiments, Abubakar Malami has said.
According to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, a minimum of 22 former governors are currently under probe or on trial.
He revealed this in a meeting with journalists in his office on Thursday, December 19, 2019.
He added that it has become clear that anyone found guilty for corruption is definitely going to be punished.
His words, “The Economic and Financial Crime Commission, was able to, from 2015 to September 2019 convict 1, 636 persons involved in corruption related offences,”
“It might interest you to note that former state Governors and even serving senators are not spared.
“Currently, high profile personalities including judicial officers and former governors indicted for corruption have been prosecuted and many sentenced to jail.
“We have three former governors convicted and serving various jail terms for corruption related crimes while in office.
“Equally, twenty-two ex-governors are either under probe or on trail.”
