Anti corruption: Adopt Chinese style of prosecution, Bauchi APC chieftain to Buhari

By; Mohammed Kawu, Bauchi.
An All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain in Bauchi state, Alhaji Shuai’bu Ahmed, has counseled President Muhammadu Buhari to adopt the Chinese government’s legal approach in dealing with cases of corruption
Shu’aibu told newsmen in Bauchi that corrupt government officials were worse than armed robbers and should therefore be subjected to firing squad if found guilty as it was being done in People’s Republic of China.
“I am happy that some members of the National Assembly are in support of introducing firing squad for looters of public funds and I am a strong a supporter of Nigerians who are in support of the Chinese legal system.
“Nigerians learn by experience and if those found to be corrupt are executed, the level of corruption would automatically drop down, but if offenders are given leniency, the level of corruption will continue to rise” he said.
Shu’aibu dismissed critics of Buhari’s administration fight against corruption, observing that they were corrupt persons playing diversionary tactics to cover their bad deeds.
According to the APC chieftain, fraudulent persons will always evolve ways of diverting the attention of crusaders from the main course, but if you check deep down, they have something to hide, and described corruption as “deadly” that could affect generations to come.
Shu’aibu noted that Buhari is a courageous leader, and urged National Assembly to review the country’s laws on corruption, and establish a special court to handle corruption offences.
“Buhari will not last forever, but enacting laws and establishing special courts will deter any President coming after him from legalizing corruption as done during the last administration in the country,” he said.
On insurgency, the APC juggernaut advised critics of the Buhari administration to have a rethink as the government had done well on the issue.
“Within the short period President Buhari has spent in office, even his own enemies will say that he has performed well and peace is gradually returning to the country.
“The people of the North East were almost facing extinction and if that situation then had continued, the states in the region would have been ruined by now,” he said, and called for the reconstruction of communities destroyed by the insurgents.
The APC Chieftain also suggested that the Federal Government should introduce deliberate economic policies for the North East to revamp the economy of the sub-region and enable the people to rehabilitate themselves.
