Judiciary Is Corrupt, Sides With Crooks – El-rufai

The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-rufai, has slammed the judiciary, saying the system is corrupt and sides with crooks against the people.

This is as he lamented that his state has not been able to convict those who stole government funds.

The governor said this when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today programme.

“In Kaduna State, the corruption perception is much lower than in other states. We have taken measures. We have made examples of people in public service. We have sacked those that were found to be fiddling with public funds.

“We are prosecuting them, we have not convicted anybody because the judicial system is just pathetic—is too slow and in my view often on the side of the crooks rather than on the side of the government or the innocents,” he said.

He added that one of the biggest mistakes Nigeria made was setting up the National Industrial Court. He cited instances where the court freed people accused of corruption.

“One of the biggest mistakes the government made is creating the NIC, which sees its duty as taking sides of the employees and not the employer. It is not always the employer that is wrong,” he said
