We Won’t Go Back On Executive Order – FG

We Won’t Go Back On Executive Order – FG

The Federal Government made its position known through the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in an interview with Vanguard newspaper

The Federal Government has said it will not go back on the Executive Order signed by President Muhammadu Buhari last week.

The Federal Government made its position known through the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, in an interview with Vanguard newspaper.

The Executive Order is to preserve assets of corrupt persons and institutions under prosecution.

The Peoples Democratic Party had in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, opposed the Executive Order 6.

But Malami said the order was in the best interest of Nigeria.
He told Vanguard newspaper: “The Executive Order as signed by the President is not peculiar and exclusive to Nigeria as a democracy.

“Major democratic climes, including America and United Kingdom, have similar orders in place.

“In the US, you have Executive Order blocking the property of persons involved in human rights abuse or corruption, which was signed in 2017.

“In the United Kingdom, you have Unexplained Wealth Order and Elimination of Corruption Order, among others.

“In the Nigerian context, the Executive Order No 6 is not only legitimate in line with the tradition and context of the precedent obtained in major democratic climates but a constitutional obligation imposed by our constitution on the government to fight corruption.

“It is only the enemies of anti-corruption with huge skeletons in their cupboards that believe in turning the hand of the clock back and rubbishing the gains made by the administration in the fight against corruption that will fight its application and operations.

“The government will not succumb to the antics of those who plunged the country into security crisis, compromise our investigative and judicial process and subject our economy into unprecedented recessions.

“Corruption must naturally fight back and it is exactly what is unfolding by the resolve of the corrupt elements to fight the order.”
