President Muhammadu Buhari has complained that lawyers and judges are stalling efforts to rid the country of corruption.

The President said the judiciary had an important role to play in the fight against corruption by enforcing the applicable laws.

He pointed out that it is critically important, that the judiciary ensure that criminal justice administration is not delayed.

He challenged judges to always fight delay of cases in court and to also fight corruption ‘in its own ranks, perceived or otherwise.’ “We expect to see less tolerance to delay tactics used by defence lawyers or even the prosecution in taking cases to conclusion.

He said this while declaring open a workshop for Nigerian judges at the National Judicial Institute, Abuja, on Monday.
