The Nigerian Judicial Council has rejected a recent report issued by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes in conjunction with the National Bureau of Statistics grading the judiciary workers as the second highest receiver of bribe in the country.
The NJC, in a statement by its Director of Information, Mr. Soji Oye, on Sunday, said the conclusion of the report about bribery in the judiciary was untrue, baseless and a figment of the two agencies’ imagination.
Faulting the report, the NJC described it as not only subjective but speculative.
It queried the criteria used by the UNODC and the NBS to measure the level of bribe-taking in the judiciary to grade the arm of government as the second largest receiver of bribe.
