Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday said the narrative that justice can be bought in Nigeria is a serious problem impeding investments in the country.

Prof Osinbajo added that for Nigeria to experience the kind of development the current administration wants to bring about there will be a need for the justice sector to deal with the issues of integrity, insisting that not doing so will only continue to clog the wheel of economic development.

Speaking on the role of law in national development, the vice president said the current administration is committed to developing the nation and its economy.

According to the vice president, if the justice sector does not purge itself of corrupt practices, it will continue to slow down the wheel of development in the nation.

He explained that while the administration is committed to plugging loop holes of corruption and mismanagement and removing needless bureaucracy to free up the economy, its objective can only be achieved with the support of the Nigerian bar and bench.

Another member of the panel and former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Mr. Joseph Daudu, advocated for an open system of appointment in every sector of the economy as one of the critical antidote to the menace of corruption in the country. (Channels TV)
