The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to ignore popular artiste and Convener of Our Mumu Don Do, Charles Oputa, a.k.a. Charly Boy.
Charly Boy and some other groups will on Monday (today), begin a daily protest demanding for the repatriation of a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, from the United Kingdom where she is being investigated for alleged corruption.
According to the protesters, it is improper for the Federal Government to be seizing cash and properties worth billions of naira from Alison-Madueke without applying for her repatriation to Nigeria to face punishment for her alleged crimes.
However, Sagay said the protesters had ulterior motives.
The senior advocate said Charly Boy and his ilk knew that the judicial system in Nigeria was weak and could easily escape justice and that was why they did not want Diezani to be tried in London.
Sagay said, “Their demand is not only unrealistic but it is not even being done in good faith. These people are hostile to the anti-corruption struggle and are hoping that if Diezani is brought here, there will be difficulty in getting her convicted.”
