P & ID: Senator Kwari commends UK Court’s stay order
Senator Suleiman Abdu Kwari, Chairman, Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Cirimes has expressed delight over last week’s stay of execution of the P & ID judgment granted Nigeria by a Uk Court.
A British court on Thursday granted Nigeria’s request to stay execution of the $9.6bn judgment it delivered in favour of Process and Industrial Developments in August this year.
Reacting to the verdict, Senator Kwari described it as a necessary outcome in Nigeria’s bid to preserve its God-given resources from falling into the hands of absolutely underserving actors.
Kwari who represents Zone One Senatorial District of Kaduna state urged the Nigerian delegation led by the Attorney General and Minister of Justice Abubakar Malami, to keep their eyes on the ball.
“This should not be a temporary victory. Consult widely to ensure that every loophole has been covered in the appeal process.
“I urge you to carve their names in gold by lawfully resisting any and every attempt to fleece this nation and to successfully prove the untoward processes that led to this national problem,” Senator Kwari charged the FG delegation.
He disclosed that the Senate President Ahmed Lawan, has tasked the 9th Senate to pursue a legislative agenda that will ensure robust preventive measures and inter-governmental cooperation that will allow for quick dispensation of justice in corruption related cases.
“I therefore assure Nigerians that fight against corruption by this administration is a winnable one.
“Our task in the Senate Committee on Anti-Corruption and Financial Crimes will include the strengthening of those anti-graft institutions to prevent and combat corruption.
“Let me also thank Mr. President for being the vanguard of this quest to rid our nation of the corrupt elements that have held us down for so long.
“We will be doing our best in ensuring that the Proceeds of Crime Bill is represented and passed into law in the shortest possible time,” he said.
