Chairman of the Presidential Anti-corruption Advisory Committee, Prof. Itse Sagay, revealed in an interview that those involved in the $2.1b arms purchase scam, have begun to refund the money they stole.

According to The Nation, Sagay said there might be a ‘soft landing’ for those who return money.

He said “a lot of money has been recovered and the result of that is that such people are likely to be given soft landing.

 ”The President is much on course in the struggle, not only against corruption, but in the fight to stabilise this country and repair it for the march ahead towards development. I support what he is doing, because he is doing the right thing.”

Adding that “This is a fallacy that I hear all the time. In fact, Buhari is not personally involved in the anti-corruption war. Is he Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), Code of Conduct? He is not the head of these agencies.”

Sagay also said “So many people are working in different areas and he is not involved in the corruption battle. Many of us hardly see him because he is not directly involved, but we know what to do. He has put us, people in position; EFCC people and everybody is involved. That the EFCC is doing an excellent job does not mean that is the only thing going on.”

Prof. Itse Sagay recently faulted the judgement of the Supreme Court, upholding the elections of some Governors across the nation, adding that the apex court’s judgements were not justifiable.
