A
group, Progressive Lawyers Forum, has offered free legal services to all
government agencies responsible for fighting corruption under the incoming
Buhari administration.
Speaking
Thursday at a media briefing, the group’s National Coordinator, Silas Onu, said
the pro-bono service will be for government agencies saddled with the
responsibility of fighting corruption against public officials, past and
present. Continue…

“To
demonstrate our commitment to support the fight against corruption, we have
resolved to offer pro-bono legal services to all government agencies,” he said.
He
said the agencies concerned can take advantage of the offer to cut down the
high cost of prosecuting corrupt persons.
“There
are too many thieves that need to be made an example for prospective ones to
learn from, therefore the cases on corruption may overwhelm the internal
lawyers of these agencies,” Mr. Onu said.
Mr.
Onu said the group agreed with the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, on the
need to halt corruption.
The
group called for the removal of constitutional immunity presently protecting
sitting governors and presidents from facing corruption charges.
