President Muhammadu Buhari says the Judiciary is critical in the quest of his administration at ridding the country of corruption. The President also urged the judges to always remain impartial the process of dispensing Justice in corruption cases brought before them. President Buhari stated the pronouncements at the opening of a two day workshop for judges on the fight against corruption at the National Judicial Institute Abuja.
Coming into office on an electioneering campaign anchored on the fight against corruption, the current administration has been busy prosecuting one corruption case or other. Evolving ways of ensuring speedy dispensation of justice in the ongoing case is top on the wish list of government. But to President Buhari quick dispensation of justice without attendant Impartiality of judiciary will not yield the desired result.
For his part, the Chief Justice of the Federation, the workshop underpins the resolve of the judiciary in the fight against corruption. He, however warn judges to stop desists from frustrating prosecution through the issuance of unnecessary injunctions. The workshop also featured presentation of papers from representatives of United Nations, Commonwealth secretariat and judges from other jurisdictions.
