"Remove Immunity From Political Posts Now And Corruption Will Die"

Former Information Minister Labaran Maku, Sunday, called for the removal of immunity clause for elected executive officers from the country’s constitution.

Maku, a gubernatorial candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Nasarawa state in 2015, made this call while fielding questions from newsmen in Wakama, Akun Development Area of the state.

He explained that the removal of the immunity clause would help tackle corruption and ensure good governance.

“Let us also pray for the peace of the country and give President Muhammadu Buhari the needed support and cooperation to enable him tackle the challenges facing the country. “I believe that the immunity of state governors should be removed, no governor needs immunity and if it is removed, this will help to check fraud, corruption and mismanagement,’’ he said.
