Olisa Agbakoba, a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, has called on the 10th National Assembly to find long-term solutions to the challenges that impede the nation’s development.
The Senior Advocate of Nigeria emphasized that Nigeria is currently facing one of the most significant challenges in its complex history.
Agbakoba highlighted issues such as widespread unemployment, dilapidated hospitals, poor road infrastructure, and the high cost of living.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the SAN emphasized the need for a comprehensive overhaul of the anti-corruption agencies, as they are not functioning cohesively and often display excessive zeal in their work.
He urged Nigerian citizens to hold their lawmakers accountable to address the enduring problems of the nation.
Agbakoba emphasized the importance of the lawmakers focusing on efficient revenue generation, as there are ample opportunities to generate significant funds to tackle the nation’s pressing issues.
The SAN also emphasized the necessity for a thorough review of the legal framework governing the anti-corruption agencies to ensure their effectiveness.
President Bola Tinubu suspended the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Abdulrasheed Bawa, based on serious misconduct allegations.
