as well as other crimes that have sneaked into our consciousness like
kidnapping and banditry, as well as farmers/herdsmen clashes and other
crimes camouflaged as such and all other anti-social vices that slow
down our nation’s wheels of progress.
“We also offer our support
for the fight against corruption and appeal that the institutions
saddled with this onerous task be given a necessary encouragement and
independence to do the right thing.”
Makarfi further urged the
president to show “greater respect” to court decisions as well as for
the fundamental rights of Nigerians.
“There is no way we can have a
respectable voice in the comity of civilized nations until we rebuild
our institutions and imbue them with the necessary independence and
confidence that will improve both their visage and standing with the
citizenry,” he said.
“The government should lead the charge in
this regard by, especially, exhibiting greater respect to judicial
pronouncements as well as respecting the fundamental rights of all
Nigerians,” he said.
