Corruption, Itse Sagay, CourtThe Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay, has said members of the judiciary are drifting in the wrong direction by showing solidarity with their colleagues who deserve condemnation.

According to him, it is important to check the trend because Nigeria can never have a successful fight against corruption without the full backing of the judiciary.

Professor Sagay, who described the judiciary as lukewarm, told Channels Television in Abuja that the attitude of the National Judicial Council suggests a compromise, which is unbecoming of the profession.

He said, “Within the country, we are beginning to see a major problem of the judiciary not seeing its role as a very major one in the battle against corruption.

“Therefore, they are exhibiting some sort of esprit de corps or solidarity with their brethren who, in fact, they should excoriate and condemn for bringing down the image of their sacred institution.

“Those are some of the major problems, but we have plans to ensure that the drift in the wrong direction does not continue.”
