Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has called for the strengthening of the laws establishing the anti-graft agencies in order for the fight against corruption to be transparent and not selective. Addressing reporters at his house in Ilorin today, Saraki calls for a holistic approach to the fight against corruption, emphasizing that there should be no political coloration.
He says increasing the budget of the agencies, training and retraining of the officers are some of the areas that should be looked into for the war to be won. On the alleged earth tremor that happened in Kaduna State, the Senate President assures Nigerians that the Senate will investigate the incident.
He says the legislative chamber will invite relevant agencies to enlighten Nigerians on their preparedness in case of higher occurrence of the tremor. Saraki also spoke on the alleged disappearance of foodstuff meant for Internally Displaced Persons, saying he has added the issues to some other issues to be verified by the Senate on resumption.
Saraki also promises that the Senate will invite economists to consider how to move the nation out of the economic crisis.
