co-ordinated by the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL), speakers, in unmistakeable terms condemned the president’s seeming tolerance of corrupt practices and individuals in his government and the country at large. Lagos
The co-ordinating chairman of the group, Debo Adeniran, said that while subsisting advertisements, news features and editorials in the media may have painted a picture of commitment to fight corruption, ‘the president has not gained appreciable mileage in the nation’s unrelenting war against corruption.’
He said that despite the disapproving report on anti-corruption effort of the nation by the Human Rights Watch (HRW) recently, the president ‘has not deemed it fit to do anything significant to remedy the deteriorating situation.’
