Names of former governors whose corruption cases are to be reopened; Saraki included..

The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, last week sent a letter to the ICPC requesting for the case files of former governors that have been investigated for corruption.

According to media sources, some of the former governors whose corruption cases are to be reopened include Senate President Bukola Saraki who was a two term governor of Kwara state, Orji Uzo Kalu of Abia state, Ahmed Yerima of Zamfara state, Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state, Gbenga Daniel of Ogun state, George Akume of Benue state, Saminu Turaki of Jigawa state, Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu state, Sule Lamido of Jigawa state, Lucky Igbinedion of Edo state, Boni Haruna of Adawa state, Peter Odili of Rivers state, Martin Elechi of Ebonyi, James Ibori of Delta state, and others.

The letter by the attorney general states that the Federal government in its power will prosecute governors whose cases of corruption have long been investigated but have not being tried.

This will be the third case against Saraki as he is already standing trial for alleged false asset declaration while he was governor of Kwara state and also for alleged forgery of Senate standing rules.
