The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed’s recent pronouncement on the need to strictly administer the provisions of the administration of criminal justice act as a major turning point in the country’s fight against corruption.

The minister, who made the remarks in Abuja, yesterday while receiving a delegation from Deutsche Welle, the German International Radio, said with the pronouncement, there is no hiding place for corrupt persons in Nigeria.

“We are happy to report that yesterday the fight against corruption received a very robust support from the judiciary when the Chief Justice of Nigeria announced to the world that henceforth, the Administration of Criminal Justice Act will become operational and with this, it means that the long delays and adjournments that have been associated with corruption trials will be a thing of the past,” he said.

Alhaji Mohammed described the development in the judiciary as the biggest institutional support for the fight against corruption in Nigeria, saying henceforth frivolous motions and unnecessary adjournments will no longer be impediments to the fight against corruption.

Reiterating an earlier statement by President Buhari, he said the administration would fight corruption relentlessly.
