A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Sokoto State, Alhaji Abdullahi Bafarawa, on Monday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to set up special courts to handle cases of treasury looting.

He also urged the president to appoint God-fearing Judges to try the cases.

Bafarawa told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto that prosecuting those who stole public funds would serve as lesson for others with similar motives.

He advised that only fearless and courageous judges should be given the responsibility to try persons that would be indicted for looting the nation’s funds.

“Those stolen funds should be recovered for the common good of the citizens of the country.”

He advised judges handling corruption cases to ensure quick dispensation of the matters, cautioning that “long litigation is affecting the smooth dispensation of justice.”

Bafarawa commended Buhari for the bold steps being taken to recover the nation’s money from corrupt public officers. (NAN)
