Senate president, Bukola Saraki has chided the presidency for its focus on loot recovery rather than fighting corruption itself.
Saraki, while speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, advised the presidency and anti-corruption agencies in the country to pay more attention to destroying corruption and placing emphasis on the recovery of loot. He added that the Senate will work to realign the anti-corruption fight. In his words;
“You see, let us separate recovery from the fight against corruption.We still believe that yes, recoveries are being done, but are we doing anything to actively stop corruption going on now.
This recovery has gone out there. They are two separate issues.The focus I am seeing is recovery, but corruption is still there.That is the area that we are focusing on as a Senate.
Anybody that brings a case about what is happening now, we will go in, look at those agencies and expose them.We want to continue to represent the people in that way.”
