President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, said his administration was reorganising the judiciary as part of efforts to win the ongoing anti-corruption war.
Buhari spoke at a joint press conference he had with visiting Namibian leader, Mr Hage Geingob, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President disclosed that as part of the reorganisation, some judges would be saddled with corruption cases.
Buhari admitted that the anti-graft war had been very difficult under democracy.
He said the challenges notwithstanding, he would not give up.
He said his administration would recover as much looted funds as possible.
He said, “We are willing, but it is very difficult under this multi-party democracy system. We are getting the cooperation of countries.
“We are trying to sell the assets wherever we found them and bring the money into the Nigerian treasury. This is all I can say at this stage because we are reorganising the judiciary.
“We are going to dedicate some judges to deal with corruption cases and try to put forward and prosecute all those that investigations proved that they have questions to answer.
“So, that is what I am telling you that we have not given up; we are doing our best and we will recover as much as humanly possible.”
Geingob thanked the Nigerian government for the support and assistance to Namibia via the deployment of Nigerian volunteers under the Technical Aid Corps.
