You lack capacity to fight corruption in judiciary, Timi Frank replies Tinubu


Timi Frank, a former deputy spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says Bola Tinubu, president-elect, does not have the capacity to curb corruption in the judiciary.


Frank was reacting to comments by the president-elect who said his administration would undertake “the changes that are necessary” to fight “corruption” in the judiciary.


“You don’t expect your judges to live in squalor, to operate in squalor and dispense justice in squalor. We must fight corruption but we must definitely look at the other side of the coin,” Tinubu had said.


The President-elect spoke in Port Harcourt, during the inauguration of a magistrate courts complex.


In a statement on Saturday, the former APC spokesperson said Tinubu’s comments were laughable because the current administration led by his party has found it difficult to curb corruption, going by graft indexes released about Nigeria.


“Consequently, the statement credited to the former Lagos state governor in Port Harcourt is laughable, given that the facts prove otherwise as clearly evident by the current realities,” Frank said.


“It’s worthy to note that Tinubu, whose ruling party campaigned on an anti-corruption mantra will suddenly drive an anti-corruption fight when even the incumbent President, who has no known history of corruption is unable to tackle the menace, rather the corruption index has risen exponentially under this administration.


 “As a nation seeking a change, we must demand accountability from our leaders, regardless of their party affiliation.


“We cannot afford to remain silent whilst corruption continues to plague our democracy. Those who seek to lead us must henceforth show by their actions that they are committed to a corrupt-free Nigeria.”
