#ObjWisdomNuggets>>>Things EFCC need to do to stop losing cases

EFCC, listen to the words of Elder Obasanjo because what an elder sees sitting down a young man will not see standing up


Background
  • Reacting to President Buhari's charge to EFCC to stop losing cases, former President Obasanjo has the following advice for the anti-graft agency;
  1. "One, they engage more of outside lawyers. I believe that they need staunch, ‘ogbologbo’ lawyers inside that will do the work. If I am a lawyer and I want the opponent to win a case, what I will file will be `wishy washy and if I file a `wishy washy’ case, the opponent will see the loophole and he will get out of it. I believe that it is important".
  2. “Secondly, thorough investigation is very important. Now, investigation must be thorough, it must be proper and it must be really taken seriously".
  3. “Third, our judges must be committed in fighting corruption. They must be committed to fighting corruption. Because if the investigation is very sound and you have `ogbologbo’ lawyer to handle the case, if you have Salamigate, you know what the answer will be. So, it is a line: investigation, prosecution and the judiciary. If there is weakness along this line, chances are that corruption cases will continue to be lost, “
Out take on the matter
  • The elder has spoken what else will 'smallies' like us say? Very instructive words though.
Conclusion
  •  EFCC, DSS, Office of the Attorney General of the Federation; please stop wasting tax payers money by filing 'wishy washy' cases. You need to start winning.
