A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olabode George, has declared that the Lagos State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission Law recently signed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is designed to protect some people.
He said this on Monday while commenting about the level of corruption in the country as a whole.
George in his opinion said that the Lagos anti-corruption law was designed to shield some specific persons from prosecution.
He said, “Sanwo-Olu’s legislation that seeks to shield criminals from federal prosecution is dead on arrival. It is elementary assertion that once a state law conflicts with a federal legislation, the state law is voided.”
He added, “This is politics of deceit and self-serving glorification. They cherry pick what suits them, railroading their enemies into jail and protecting their own.”
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Military has declared that it has no intention of taking over the leadership of Nigeria but would rather continue to fulfil its roles as stated in the constitution.
The military authorities also warned Nigerian politicians to stop inciting the military to take over Nigeria’s leadership.
This was contained in a statement on Monday evening where the military authorities reacted to a submission by Robert Clarke (SAN) that Nigeria may collapse in the next six months and urged the military to take over power.
But the military in its reaction through a statement signed by the Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, pledged its allegiance to President Muhammadu Buhari and the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria.
It vowed to continue protecting the territorial integrity of Nigeria and warned its officers not to entertain any thoughts or plans of a military coup.
