The cleric disclosed that some nations had negotiated with corrupt officers to get well stolen funds and it labored for them.
Kukah mentioned: “Fighting corruption as a complete is past simply recovering stolen funds, though it’s essential to punish treasury looters and corrupt officers, to unravel the entire drawback would contain tackling it from the roots and which means the institutional framework.
“Investigate what they’ve stolen, then name them and negotiate how a lot of it may be recovered, whilst you put frameworks in place to holistically clear up the issue.
“Corruption is not only a Nigerian thing. Former presidents of nations like America, France, Israel, South Africa, among others, have been removed due to corruption charges. Yet, their countries are working.”
