SAN, Others Say Buhari Should Grant Amnesty To Looters by nairaway(m) : 12:12 pm On Apr 11, 2016
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mallam Yusuf Ali; a former Military Administrator, Theophilus Bamigboye; and the Bishop of the Anglican Church (Diocese of Kwara), Dr. Olusegun Adeyemi, has urged President Buhari and the anti-graft agencies to ensure that the anti-corruption war is not selective.
They went ahead to advise Mr President not to spare any corrupt person in the country, irrespective of the person’s political affiliation or status. But their agenda is simple - leave Bukola Saraki alone.
Bamigboye and Ali spoke during interviews with journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on the sideline of the presidential/award luncheon and fund raising of the Rotary Club of Ilorin GRA.
Dr. Adeyemi spoke in an interview with journalists during the diocese’s synod at Eiyenkorin, Ilorin.
Ali said Federal Government should grant amnesty to corrupt men if they are willing to return their loot.
Ali said, “I agree that the anti-corruption war must be holistic; holistic to the level that even those who have not been caught are tracked down. There should be amnesty; call people who you have found to have taken our money to return the money. What is important to us is how to get the money. Sending people to jail will not translate to money.
“So if you have taken our N20 and you are ready to give back N19, you can keep the N1 and we take the N19, we are still better off.”
