SERAP task President Buhari on speedy trial of past corrupt governors

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project -SERAP has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami to without delay take over corruption cases involving former and serving governors.

The organisation regretted that the trial of several former state governors accused of corruption and money laundering have continued to linger in different high courts, noting that some of the grand corruption cases involving former governors started in 2007 are yet to properly begin.

In a letter to the President and signed by SERAP Deputy Director Timothy Adewale, the organisation expressed concern that the continued delay in the prosecution of former governors suspected of committing acts of grand corruption to logical conclusion, has sent a negative message that the governors are untouchable.
