President Muhammadu Buhari says he is worried that the expectation of the public is yet to be met by the judiciary.
The president lamented that the corruption cases filed by his administration are not progressing as speedily as they should be.
President Buhari said this on Monday during a workshop on the role of judges in the fight against corruption, Buhari expressed concern over the “toleration of delay tactics by lawyers”.
He appealed to the judiciary to support his administration’s fight against corruption, saying a well-functioning criminal justice system seeks to move the country towards greater growth and development.
“I am worried that the expectation of the public is yet to be met by the judiciary with regard to the removal of delay and the toleration of delay tactics by lawyers,” he said.
