The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) has accused President Bola Tinubu of appointing persons believed to be corrupt into leadership positions.
In a statement issued in Abuja on yesterday, Mr. Auwal Musa Rafsanjani, Executive Director CISLAC, says he is worried about the effect such actions would have on the morale of anti-corruption agencies in the country.
Giving examples, he says the president’s ministerial list has an ex-governor internationally accused of aiding a former military ruler to launder Nigeria’s wealth abroad.
He also says it is disturbing that a politician who has a case to answer with the Economics and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is at the leadership of the National Assembly and will be conducting oversight duties on anti-graft agencies, including the EFCC.
Mr. Rafsanjani adds that with the assemblage of alleged corrupt individuals with integrity deficit, it is clear that, in his own words, President Tinubu has no regard or concern for the public demand to have a sane and responsible government.
