President Muhammadu Buhari has referred to the Nigerian judicial system as the major sector that needs reform before his anti-corruption war can come through
.Speaking on Sunday, January 31, 2016 at a town hall meeting with Nigerians in Addis Ababa, President Buhari said it won’t be wrong saying the judiciary system is his major headache when his administration’s ongoing anti-corruption fight is concerned.
In his words, “On the fight against corruption vis-à-vis the judiciary, Nigerians will be right to say that is my main headache for now.
“If you reflect on what I went through for 12 years when I wanted to be the President, I attempted three times and on the fourth attempt through God and the use of technology, it was possible for Nigerians to elect an APC candidate as President.
“In my first attempt in 2003, I ended up at the Supreme Court and for 13 months Buhari was in court. The second attempt in 2007, I was in court close to 20 months and in 2011, my third attempt, I was also in court for nine months.
“All these cases went up to the Supreme Court until the fourth time in 2015, when God agreed that Bohari will be President of Nigeria.”
