Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), J.S. Okutepa, has asked the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to adopt the Singaporean approach in his fight against corruption. According to him, in his second term of Mr. President, he must not compromise on the fight against this cancer called corruption.
He, however, said that Nigeria is indeed a lucky country for not been drowned despite the swamp of corruption which has affected her.
”When I see how politically exposed persons and other privileged persons use their positions to milk our commonwealth dry through collaborations of unpatriotic Nigerians and institutions, I come to the conclusions that God really loves this country.
”The level of malfeasance of corruption and corrupt practices should have crippled this country by now. That we have no good road and other social amenities is a function of corruption and corrupt practices. There is corruption everywhere. The leaders are corrupt and the followers too are corrupt.
”When you want official things done, those in charge expect you to bribe them or corrupt them before you can get result. It permeates every strata of our society. No part is spared. That is why I think the president needs to adopt the Singaporean approach in the fight against corruption. In the 2nd term of Mr President he must not compromise on the fight against this cancer called corruption,” he said.
Speaking further, he said that anywhere corruption is found it must be fought to stand still, adding that Mr President needs to use necessary process to fight corruption. He also noted that those who are policing corruption must themselves be policed so that they do not compromise the fight against corruption and corrupt practices, stressing that the civil and public services must be brought to sanity.

”There is no need pretending about it. There are people who have no business being around the government. These persons must be made to account for ill-gotten wealth and dealt with according to law. The president must go after Nigerians of impeccable character and credit and recruit them to help. Time for political reward should be over. Nigeria should use its vast resources to develop through Nigerians of impeccable character.
”This country needs men and women of impeccable character and integrity to develop it. It needs those who have visions and courage to pilot the affairs of development. We have the capacity and human resources to do it. Time to show that there are consequences for every infractions of the law is now. Our judicial system must be well funded and equipped to meet these challenges. Men and women of impeccable character must be sourced from within the legal profession to undertake this task.
”The institutions of government must be made to be strong and owe allegiance only to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not the occupants of political offices. The rate at which political office holders are worshiped must be stopped. We must develop Nigeria for the good of the greater number of the vast majority of our people. This is my take,” he added.
