In the letter read at the plenary on Wednesday, Buhari is seeking the timely passage of three bills – the Proceeds of Crime Bill, Whistle-Blower Bill, and the Witness Protection Bill.

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, read Buhari’s letter at their respective chambers.

Buhari wrote, “I write to inform you that the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria participated in the 9th Session of the Conference of State Parties to the United Nations Convention Against Corruption held from the December 13 to 17, 2021, at the International Conference Centre in Egypt.

“At the session, the international community expressed appreciation for Nigeria’s efforts in the fight against corruption; reaffirming Nigeria’s rating as a leader in Africa in the areas of developing structures for recovery, repatriation and disposal of proceeds of crime.

“In the light of this, and the need to continue to increase Nigeria’s global profile, I hereby request that the National Assembly kindly consider and eventually pass the best possible version of the following bills: the Proceeds of Crime Bill, the Whistle Blower Bill and the Witness Protection Bill.

“Whilst anticipating the House of Representatives’ expeditious consideration of these submissions, please accept, Honourable Speaker, the assurances of my highest consideration.”

KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had also approved the establishment of a new anti-graft agency that will help take the fight against corruption to the ‘next level.
