Patrick Ndubueze, the senator-elect for Imo North, has encouraged Nigeria to adopt China’s anti-corruption strategy.
Anyone found guilty of embezzling money or accepting bribes totaling 3 million yuan (US$443,000) is subject to the death sentence in China.
If Nigeria wants to eradicate corruption, according to Ndubueze, it must embrace China’s anti-corruption law.
On Wednesday, he gave a speech at the 10th National Assembly Induction Programme being held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.
“Most of us saw that the Chinese government executed, I believe, the Attorney General or the Minister of Justice,” he remarked. A sitting minister of agriculture was executed. The entire globe was pleased.
Why are you unable to introduce a bill at the National Assembly, EFCC? Bring a measure mandating the execution of anybody found guilty of embezzling $1 billion or more.

When the law authorising the death of convicted corrupt public officials is approved, Ndubueze suggested that it be forwarded to Nigerian embassies overseas so that everybody entering the nation is aware of the law.
In order to expedite corruption proceedings, the newly elected congressman stated that it is also necessary to establish a permanent court for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, or EFCC.
