Three civil society organisations have supported Soyinka’s call on the President to set up a Hall of Shame for corrupt past leaders and politicians.
The Socio-Economic Right and Accountability Project, the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership and the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights said in separate interviews that the setting up of such a parallel hall would restore sanity into Nigeria’s public administration and restore the country’s value system.
The SERAP Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, said, “I believe that as we have incorporated honours for those who have done us proud. We should also have a Hall of Shame where it will be documented that some persons have looted our treasury blindly. The call of Soyinka to me is very timely and it makes a whole lot of national sense.”
