Robert Clarke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) has said he slightly disagrees with the notion which suggests that the Eight National Assembly frustrated President Muhammadu Buhari’s Government in the fight against corruption.
Chief Clarke who was a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics made the comment in reaction to a statement by the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay.
Professor Sagay had said that the capacity of corruption to fight back has been reduced with the expiration of the Eight Assembly.

Sagay opined that the Eight Assembly did everything they could to frustrate the (Federal) Government in the fight against corruption, a claim which Chief Clarke believes is a very sweeping statement.
According to Chief Clarke, Prof Sagay’s statement is one which would need to be proven with evidence and facts.
“I don’t know what evidence he has, I know he is a very good lawyer and maybe he has facts which I don’t have but I believe and I agree with him that some or the leadership of the 8th Assembly could be described with that tag that he (Sagay) has now given to the 8th Assembly,” Chief Clarke said.
Mr Clarke said it is not fair to place the tag on the whole of the 8th Assembly, adding that he agrees with Professor Sagay that some of those in the legislature at the time could be said to be frustrating the government’s efforts.
“Professor Sagay is correct but it is not to the extent of the whole 8th Assembly, but the core leaders,” Chief Clarke stressed.

Following Naira Marley’s arrest by the Economic Financial and Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged advanced fee fraud, Nigerian Rapper, Ruggedman has reacted to the singer’s arrest.
Azeez Fashola popularly known as Naira Marley was reportedly arrested on Friday, May 10, 2019, days after he released a song titled “Am I A Yahoo Boy”
Earlier in April, the singer in an Instagram Post said anyone who knew about slave trade would not criminalize internet fraud.

The veteran rapper who spoke in Pidgin English said : “I wake up this morning to see say EFCC don carry am. I don dey wait to see his people wey go halla go EFCC office go protest, but I no see dem.
“Well, make we dey wait, because at the end of the day, my advice to the people on social media, all you gangsters and gangsteresses, know that when dem dey push you for social media, real-life dey. If dem push you mistakenly …you know say when rewire dey work, and dem cross two wires, e go shock. So wetin happen to am today be say dem go cross social media wire, the fake life wire with reality own, e com shock am. As reality com put hand inside socia media pull am comot say guy com and explain that your slavery issue first”.
You’ll recall that Naira Marley and Ruggedman recently had a go at each other when the latter criticised the former over his statement about internet fraud and slavery.
The veteran rapper asked Naira Marley not to mislead young people on social media by using slavery to justify cybercrime.
@nairamarley My brother, I love your music and all but you need to get one thing clear and do not mislead people. Especially kids on social media. You can do Yahoo all you want, but do not disrespect the part of the black race that were sold into slavery by trying to use it to justify cyber crime. The people who bought slaves died ages ago. If you want to fight that, then start a cause/movement against the British and America. Who ever owned slaves, but stealing the hard earned money of other people isnt about slavery. You say the Nigerian leaders are looting trillions outta this country, why arent you hacking their accounts and giving back to the people Robin Hood style? I swear I go hail you for that one. But bro respect the black race and dont try to use it to justify cyber crime. E no follow. If it wasnt a crime popo wont be busting boys for it.
Thousands of qualified Nigerians cant get jobs outside Nigeria because of “yahoo”. Their families are suffering.
Young Nigerians are suspect everywhere they go because of “yahoo”. If you want to do it, enjoy. Nobody is stopping you.
But remember that if you do the crime, if you are caught you do the time.
I got friends that are into it, I dont judge.
I got friends who are in jail as we speak for doing it, I dont judge.
All man dey hustle. God bless all our hustles and let’s hold our leaders accountable.
In another interview with Hip TV, Ruggedman urged to Naira Marley to stop celebrating fraud.
He said; “For a young upcoming artist like him, he shouldn’t be doing stuff like that. You don’t just come out and start celebrating fraud. Especially something, nothing not just in Nigeria but the whole world is frowning upon. You don’t want to know how they look at Nigerians abroad because of fraud. Does two wrongs make a right?
In his response, Naira Marley fired back at Ruggedman asking him to spend his time writing lyrics to resurrect his career rather than writing advice.
