PMB Should Suspend Rule of Law For One Year – Niyi Akintola


buhari-and-jonathanSenior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Niyi Akintola has said that some Nigerians will support President Buhari if he uses any tough tactics that works to fight corruption.

Akintola said the issue of corruption has eaten deep into the fabrics of the country.

He said “If our president decides to employ the tactics of the Chinese and Singaporeans, we will back him.”

Akintola also said “All our president needs to do is to go to the National Assembly, call the state Houses of Assembly, more so now that governors are telling him to declare the state of emergency on the economy. He can bring in the issue of corruption and ask that we suspend the rule of law for one year because a drastic problem requires a drastic solution and Femi Falana supported me. We stood up for Nigeria and we said this thing is killing Nigeria. But having sworn to abide by the constitution, he (the president) cannot use extra-constitutional means.”

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said this in an interview with The Tribune.
