A statement issued today by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said that Buhari stated this while speaking at a town hall meeting with Nigerians living in Ethiopia. The
president said that far-reaching reforms of the judiciary remained a key priority for his administration.
The statement reads in part: “On the fight against corruption vis-à-vis the judiciary, Nigerians will be right to say that is my main headache for now. If you reflect on what I went through for 12 years when I wanted to be the president, I attempted 3 times.
At the fourth attempt, through God and the use of technology, it was possible for Nigerians to elect an APC candidate as president. In my first attempt in 2003, I ended up at the Supreme Court and for 13 months I was in court.
The second attempt in 2007, I was in court close to 20 months, and in 2011, my third attempt, I was also in court for nine months. All these cases went up to the Supreme Court until the fourth time in 2015, when God agreed that I will be President of Nigeria.”
Buhari assured them that with the support of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, he would continue to do his best to improve the nation’s judicial administration system, adding that the ongoing fight against corruption could be effectively tackled with the strong support of the judiciary….. n ppl desisting from hailing d white beard of arrested suspects…..
