We would like to welcome the timely appointment of Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption by President Buhari. The formation of this committee by President Muhammadu Buhari has not come as a surprise, it’s one of his campaign promises coming to light.

For some time now, news from the grapevines and rumors indicated that nothing will be done about the abject corruption embedded in Nigeria. The general feeling by many who have expressed their opinion publicly in the media is that the previous regime performed below the expectations.

Speaking from Canada, Prof. Isa Odidi, Director General Diaspora Campaign, Buhari Support Group Centre said "President Buhari in appointing the new Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption has not only taken into consideration Nigeria's diversity, geopolitical spread and ethnicity but more importantly, President Buhari has appointed men and woman with exceptional personalities of the society throughout their careers". When contacted for their reaction, Barr. Solomon Dalung, Hon. Dr. Mohammad Sani Abdu (Member National Assembly) and Sen. Binta Masi Garba (Member National Assembly) in Abuja, Nigeria also echoed Prof. Odidi's sentiments.

APC USA International Secretariat agree with Prof. Odidi's comments as a cursory analysis of the new Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption antecedents lends support to why they are the best choice;

  • Prof. Itse Sagay Professor of Law and Civil Rights Activist, Chair;

  • Prof. Femi Odekunle Professor of Criminology, Ahmadu Bello University, (member);

  • Dr. Benedicta Daudu Associate Professor of International Law, University of Jos, (member);

  • Prof. E. Alemika Professor of Sociology, University of Jos, (member);

  • Prof. Sadiq Radda Professor of Criminology, Bayero University, Kano, (member);

  • Hadiza Bala Usman Civil Society Activist,; and

  • Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (Secretary).

It is pertinent to announce that, the aforementioned technocrats and intellects have the overwhelming support of Diaspora Nigerians, APC USA International Secretariat and Nigerians at large. Nigerians expect nothing less than immediate demonstration justice; without fear or favors at all levels.

Furthermore, APC USA International Secretariat would like to congratulate and welcome the new of Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption and appeal to them caution and vigilant at all times, to exonerate themselves from any issue beside looking forward to bring to book all that have robbed Nigerian treasury to date.

APC USA International Secretariat salutes President Buhari for these appointments and call on all Nigerians to support the new of Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption.
