The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr Abubakar Malami (SAN) on Thursday said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption is “total, comprehensive and dispassionate devoid of any political or ethnic sentiments or inclination.”
He also said about 22 former governors are either on trial or facing investigations over corruption allegations.
Malami disclosed this during a meeting with newsmen at his office in Abuja.
“The failure to address corruption inhibits sustainable long growth which undermines national development.
“It might interest you to note that former state governors and even serving senators are not spared.
“Currently, high profile personalities including judicial officers and former governors indicted for corruption have been prosecuted and many sentenced to jail.
“We have three former governors convicted and serving various jail terms for corruption related crimes while in office. Equally, 22 ex-governors are either under probe or on trial,” Malami said.
