A constitutional lawyer, Prof Itse Sagay (SAN) says he is confident that the Buhari administration will stamp out systemic corruption and indiscipline in the country.
Sagay told NAN in Lagos yesterday that the present socio-economic woes facing the country were direct consequences of indiscipline and corruption by past governments.
He said it was unfortunate that as an oil producing nation, the country was still experiencing scarcity of petrol.
Sagay cited the current energy crisis confronting the nation due to scarcity of petroleum products, which almost crippled the economy.
He said that such woes facing the nation were results of corruption and indiscipline, insisting “they must be stamped out.”
Sagay said it had become imperative that government must situate this in the right perspective.
He said the new administration ought to ensure urgent resuscitation of all the moribund refineries in the country for crude oil to be refined locally.
“We must refine all our petroleum products within the country. We must stop the importation of petroleum products. It is criminal for the country to purchase petroleum products from non oil producing countries,” Sagay said.
The senior advocate said Nigeria had all the devices to end the ongoing epileptic power supply, which had further impoverished its citizens.
He advised that government should allow communities to organise their own power supply systems and become independent.
Sagay called for the abolition of national grid system to allow for independent power supply.
He said government must not compel everybody to hook-on to the national grid that had not been performing optimally.
Sagay noted that the independent power stations were already in use in some parts of Lagos State, and were effective.
