The Advanced People’s Democratic Alliance (APDA) has commended the judiciary and the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, for establishing special courts for corruption cases.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Tosin Adeyanju, APDA also commended the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, for “his unrelenting effort to bring all the persons who looted or aided in looting our commonwealth to justice”.

“We are of the unrepentant stance that corruption is the biggest challenge to the sustainable development of our country and only it’s eradication can return our nation back to the part of development, national cohesion and social inclusiveness,” the party said.

Apart from welcoming the establishment of special courts for corruption cases, APDA praised the whistle-blower policy and called on Nigerians to expose corrupt practices and resist forces bent on destabilising the nation.

“We thank all Nigerians who have spoken up against the machinations of agents of destablisation and urge all Nigerians to stand together and work towards an indivisible united, peaceful and prosperous nation,” it said.

“APDA rejects hate speech and hateful conduct and urge the relevant agencies to resist agents and promoters of hate speech, impunity and disregard for our ethics and values.”
