The Federal Ministry of Justice says it is ready to partner anti-graft agencies to ensure the prosecution of all those accused of stealing public funds.
The Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Alhaji Abdullahi Ahmed, stated this while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a meeting on Thursday with President Muhammadu Buhari in the Presidential Villa.
He said: “If the ministry receives investigations concluded by the responsible agencies, we will play our part.
“We will play our part in the prosecution of whoever has been found wanting and the security agencies have concluded their investigation on them.
“At the moment, the ministry is not in receipt of any report concerning anybody in that regard.“
The Permanent Secretary further said that the ministry was cooperating with the President to ensure that all the promises he made to Nigerians vis-a-vis the Rule of Law were kept.
“We have briefed the President on how we conduct ourselves concerning the maintenance of the Rule of Law in the country.
“As you know, Rule of Law is one of the cardinal policies of this administration and we have given him a rundown of what we have been doing from 2011 till now,” Ahmed added.
He said that the ministry assured the president of its continued cooperation to ensure that all the promises he made on the Rule of Law are achieved.
