Human rights lawyer Femi Falana, (SAN), has urged President Bola Tinubu to take the initiative in the fight against corruption.
At the bar’s 60th anniversary celebration on Monday, the fiery lawyer made this statement at Afe Babalola University in Ado-Ekiti.
He claimed that while corrupt politicians who have been indicted continue to walk the halls of power, the country is still not free from the tenterhooks of corruption.
In his own words: “Since our nation is currently in turmoil, let the President spearhead an anti-corruption fight.
Let’s return to a time when those engaged in bribery and theft were prohibited from participating in national decision-making.
Falana urged the government to stop discriminating against people based on their religion.
“In places where there are mosques but not church, let the Christians go to court as it is an act of discrimination,” he said.
He further urged people to understand and exercise their rights, saying that “when a person is killed, one can sue the Government to punish the offender or to pay a fee as compensation.”
