PACAC No Longer In Operation, It Ended With Buhari’s Government – Prof. Sagay


Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) on Saturday disclosed that the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) which he headed under the Muhammadu Buhari administration is no longer in existence.

PACAC was established by former President Buhari in August 2015 with an objective to advise the administration on the prosecution of the war against corruption and the implementation of required reforms in Nigeria’s criminal justice system.

When asked in an interview if he is still the chairman of PACAC, Sagay responded “PACAC is no longer in operation. We have wind up. It was created by the Muhammadu Buhari administration as a committee of that government. So, as the life of that government has ended, we have to wind up”.

Also speaking on the achievement of the committee, Sagay said “the greatest achievement of PACAC is in building the capacity of anti-corruption agencies to do their jobs. We gave them training on prosecution, training on drawing up charges and we assembled experts from all over the world to produce manual on how they shall do their work”.

“We trained judges also on how to deal with corrupt cases. We got judges from Canada, Ghana and various countries in the world who are involved in corruption cases to come to Nigeria to discuss with their colleagues on how to handle corruption cases”.
