Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, has called on President Bola Tinubu to avoid sending misleading messages in his anti-corruption efforts.
Falana stated that certain individuals currently residing in the Aso Presidential Villa are undergoing trials for corruption.
These remarks were made by Falana during his guest appearance at the 60th-anniversary celebration of Aare Afe Babalola’s call to the bar in Ekiti State on Monday.
“I’m urging the president to lead an anti-corruption crusade so that the country – the largest concentration of black people on earth, can take its rightful place in the committee of nations.
“Highly-placed public officers steal money meant for building hospitals, and people are dying on our roads.
“Some of those who are going in and out of the villa are standing trial for looting the treasury of this country. So, wrong signals must not be sent to our people and the international community,” Falana said.
