A Christian cleric, Pastor Emmanuel Toluwayemi, the Deputy General Overseer of the Gospel Faith Mission International, GOFAMINT, has faulted the judiciary for taking too long to determine corruption cases, saying their action is frustrating President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war.
Pastor Toluwayemi said this in Akure on his Apostolic visit to Region 3 of the church in the state.
The cleric explained that “Cases brought before the court by the EFCC are dragging too long. The courts should do more work to deal with cases faster and decisively.
“If we have all these cases in court and convictions are not made the whole exercise may just be a waste of time.
“This is where the Church should come in with teachings that will change the orientation of the people and encourage them to be more God-fearing and people-loving”.
Pastor Toluwayemi went on to laud President Buhari for confronting the “malaise of corruption headlong,” noting that “much still has to be done and the judiciary must help the regime in this fight”.
He also warned against bias or being selective in the fight against the menace by the Buhari government.
