Sagay Speaks On 8th National Assembly
Respected Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Robert Clarke has said it might be inaccurate to say the entire 8th National Assembly frustrated President Muhammadu Buhari.
Clarke made this known when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria made the claim in reaction to a statement by the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay.
Naija News recalls Professor Sagay had noted that the 8th National Assembly frustrated President Buhari’s anti-corruption fight, noting that with the expiration of the Eight Assembly, the ability of corruption to fight back has been greatly reduced.
However, Chief Clarke opined that putting the entire 8th National Assembly in that box may be inaccurate.
He, however, agreed with Prof. Sagay that some leaders of the 8th National Assembly might be gulity of frustrating President Buhari’s corruption fight.
“I don’t know what evidence he has, I know he is a very good lawyer and maybe he has facts, which I don’t have; but I believe and I agree with him that some or the leadership of the 8th Assembly could be described with that tag that he (Sagay) has now given to the 8th Assembly.”
“Professor Sagay is correct but it is not to the extent of the whole 8th Assembly, but the core leaders,” Chief Clarke said.
