  1. We are 100 per cent in support of your fight against corruption in this country.

  2. It is our belief that all those found guilty should have their entire assets seized and forfeited to government

  3. They should also face jail sentences

The Sultan was also part of the Abdulsalam Abubakar peace committee which recently visited Buhari and urged him to tread with caution in his anti-corruption war.
