VP Osinbajo speaks on arrest of some judges, says "If we don't kill corruption, it will kill us"

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was a guest on Channels TV where he was asked about the recent arrest of some judges by the DSS. Osinbajo who is a Professor of Law and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria SAN, said he would rather not make an informal statement on the matter but that going by a general overview, what is being fought in this instance is corruption and that going by what his boss President Buhari, says, if we don't kill corruption, it will kill us. He says the people who loot Nigeria's territory have the means to hire the best lawyers who also are able to keep a case in court for 5-10 years.


"I don't want to make off the cuff(informal) but as a general remark, my position is that we are dealing with an problem. We are dealing with an existential problem. It accounts for everything. Look at what happened in the North East. Many many soldiers lost their lives. Speaking to some of the widows of these soldiers, you are just outraged by the fact that people embezzled the money that was supposed to have been used to equip the soldiers. Equip them physically, give them bulletproof vest, put them in proper armored tanks rather than fake armored tanks. These are the sorts of things that anywhere else in the world, the outrage will be such that you and I would literarily be standing up on the streets to say where are these guys who did this and if we don't feel that way, it just continues to diminish us. My son was asking me the other day that these people who did all these things, stole N50 billion and others, I haven't seen any of them locked up. I said we have a system. We have got to follow the rule of law. We are doing so. We have got to take them to a court of law. We are not in a society where we are just going to tie someone to a stick and shoot them. We have got to go to a court of law. Many of those who do these things have the resources to hire the best lawyers who can keep a case in court for 5 years, 10 years. So we have got to keep fighting that also"he said

God bless you sir, I don't get how any individual in his right senses will be against this drive at ending corruption, our country has lost so much through corrupt practices, many people have lost their lives due too the negative effects of corruption, I find it disheartening that the same Nigerians that will kill an ordinary citizen for stealing a mere handset will be making excuses when it's the time of a big man that doesn't know they exist.
You can't because of your hatred for the government, fight their intentions which are for your benefit. Whether you hate him or not, Buhari and his household can never be poor again, this fight against corruption is for people like you.

that is true, one can only imagine why it takes so long to conclude a case in Nigeria; whereas in other clime such cases are dispense off in less than 2 months; imagine if some of the popular cases like September 11, bombing in American cannot last for 3months, yet such cases in Nigeria are going through series of adjournment, withdrawal of judges etc; how many years did it Abacha's ADC to have freedom, Nnamdi Kanu is still in court, while the October 1st alleged bombers are also still in courts after several years of adjournment and arguments.

The vice president just said the bitter truth. This is why the looters keep saying follow the rule of law because they know that they can bribe the judges. I pray we go back to military regime so that they can kill all these corrupt idiots very fast. We dont even need them in jail. Just kill them. That is why i like Indonesia. They dont waste time to execute and kill.

Prof Osibanjo, pls also tell your son that the looted fund they(APC),have recovered, that they will soon be getting a percentage out of it. As to help all APC members build their 'headquarters'.

It is you I totally have pity for.A young man like you??? Probably educated? Just enter a room that has a mirror,switch off the lights & read what you typed here, then look yourself in the mirror.

FRESH said...

What did Amaechi & Fayemi do? Cos some idiots said so? Shebi Amaechi asked Wike to take him to court if he really has a case of corruption against him? Has Wike gone to any court? Why are some of you so gullible? Did Amaechi & Fayemi handle Nigeria's treasury? We're they the ones ordering CBN to release billions of dollars to Dasuki et Al? Are you all that easily manipulated by those looters? You even praise Fayose & FFK. People indicted for graft.

Bring evidence against Amaechi and Fayemi if you have and stop wailing behind social media like a coward. EFCC and the courts work with evidence. If you dont have any concrete evidences against them, shut up and forever hold your peace
