Senator Dino Melaye says President Buhari should pardon repentant treasury looters.
This is according to a statement he released, Vanguard reports.
“Though an unrepentant advocate for integrity and forthrightness especially from public office holders, I however sincerely want to recommend that Mr. President grant Presidential Amnesty/Pardon to all those who looted our treasury provided they return all proceeds of their loot to the government within six (6) months of the declaration of the Amnesty.”
This action, he says, will “encourage the voluntary return of the the looted funds, empower the government financially to immediately commence the implementation of projects and programmes that will stimulate the economy”. He also added that this will save the judiciary and law enforcement agencies the trouble of running after said looters.
Those who don’t comply within the six month window should “face the reality of aggressive and expeditious prosecution and eventual jail terms for convicts in accordance with the laws of the land” he says.
