Reopen all abandoned corruption cases — Group tells Tinubu, EFCC


The Transparency Society Network, TSN, an anti-corruption group in Lagos State has called the President, Bola Tinubu and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to reopen all abandoned corruption cases in Nigeria.

In a statement by the Executive Director of Transparency Society Network, Solomon Omokehinde, the group want the President to revisit the cases of corruption and bring them to a logical conclusion.

Congratulating Tinubu, the statement said the group are confident that under Tinubu’s watch, Nigeria would take its rightful place among the comity of nations.

However, Omokehinde insists that for this to happen, the President must address corruption and financial crimes as it would give a sense of direction for the Tinubu administration.

“To this end, we strongly advise Mr President to pay attention and revisit all cases of corruption that have not been prosecuted to a logical conclusion and has brought disrepute to the nation,” Omokehinde stated, noting that anti-graft agencies should be given the necessary backing to carry out their work unhindered.

He disclosed that “one of such cases that will serve as a litmus test for Mr President is the corruption charges levied against the Speaker of his home state, Rt. Hon Mudashiru Obasa.”

TSN also called on the EFCC to make public its findings about the Speaker and spending in the Lagos State House of Assembly. This Omokehinde said, will put an end to the speculation since the probe was first instituted in 2020.

He requested that all high-profile corruption cases be prosecuted to a logical conclusion, beyond the arrest of internet fraudsters and convictions by the EFCC.

“We strongly believe that no corruption allegation should be swept under the carpet or be overlooked.”
