The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has said the war against corruption must be won during President Muhammadu Buhari’s tenure.
The head of the Senate made this known after the bill seeking to establish the Witness Protection and Management Framework went through the second reading.
He quoted Lawan as saying, “Distinguished colleagues, almost every administration in this country would work against corruption that has bedeviled the development of this country.
“The witness protection bill that we are debating today is a way forward to encourage witnesses to testify against corruption. And by protecting them properly, that will incentivise such witnesses.
“The war against corruption is a must, and it must be won. It is not about the quantum of funds or resources that we have, but how we are able to put to use even our scarce resources.
“So, this is a very important bill, and I’m sure all of us would lend our support.”
