Femi Falana, a human rights lawyer, has advised President Bola Tinubu to avoid sending incorrect messages regarding his stance on fighting corruption.
Falana pointed out that certain individuals who are currently facing corruption charges can be found within the Aso Presidential Villa.
He made this statement as a guest speaker during the 60th anniversary celebration of Aare Afe Babalola’s call to 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.
