The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria, MMWG, has condemned and called for the recall of a member of the House of Representatives from Ebonyi state, Linus Okorie for sponsoring an obnoxious and Bill in the House calling for legalization of granting of full Amnesty for Treasury looters in the country.
The bill has passed through the first reading and it is to be tabled for 2nd Reading this month. The Group sees the bill as an affront not only on the anti-corruption stance of the present Administration but an insult on all Nigerians.
Okorie had opined that if the looter confesses and is ready to part away with substantial part of the loot or establishes Industry with the looted funds, he or she should be pardoned and granted full Amnesty.
MMWG says this bill is a follow-up to what former President Goodluck Jonathan did in granting full amnesty to his benefactor, Late Chief D.S.P Alamesighia who was convicted of looting the Bayelsa State Treasury.
The group said what Okorie is therefore calling for by his bill, is legalization of corruption, celebration of treasury looters and a call on public office holders to continue to loot.
