A former Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, says the much-famed anti-corruption war of the Muhammadu Buhari administration is flawed because the anti-graft agencies still wait for the executive to initiate new laws.

The former Oyo State gubernatorial candidate said this in Abuja at the weekend during the national anti-corruption conference put together by the Youth Developments and Moral Rebirth Initiative in collaboration with the Youth Wing of the Nawair-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria, FCT branch.

“When we’re campaigning in 2015, we made fight against corruption as one of the three cardinal programs that we chose for ourselves. But I think the fact that we rely only on the existing structures without more has made it not too impressive by my own rating,” Adebayo said.

“What I’m saying is that the ICPC, the EFCC, or the Code of Conduct, should not wait for the executive to initiate new laws.

“They, as people in the field, should think of what structures are required to enable them to do their jobs better and consequently, to initiate new legislation which will assist them.”
