The Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Mahmud Mohammed, has stated that the Judiciary is firmly in support of President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption.Justice Mohammed said this while speaking at the opening ceremony of an international workshop on the Judiciary and the Fight against Corruption, 2016.
According to the CJN, “tackling corruption is neither easy nor quick and it is a symptom of deep-rooted factors.
“The causes are complex and the means to control corruption are gradually being understood.
“There is no single magical solution, as is with most problems in development; it must be tackled simultaneously on all fronts, individually and collectively”.
He further said: “Despite the role of the third Arm of State, I must reiterate that the responsibility of fighting corruption in our country lies with every one of us, institutionally and individually.
“We cannot continue to do things the same way and expect different results.
“Let us therefore ensure that all hands are on deck working towards a corrupt free Nigeria”.
