Nigeria Moves From 107 To 96 In Global Rule of Law Adherence Index. Buhari Commended

The Buhari Media Support Group (BMSG) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for his successful war against corruption. This comes as the Rule of Law Index rating by the World Justice Project, has revealed that Nigeria has an 11 points leap from a global index of 107 to 96 in rule of law adherence .

The group also described the rating as a reflection of the success of the Buhari administration’s efforts so far in entrenching and boosting rule of law compliance in government.

In a statement signed by its Chairman, Mallam Muhammad Labbo and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke in Abuja, the BMSG calls on government agencies and departments to key into the government’s objectives of ensuring more transparency in government’s dealings.

The BMSG noted that the ratings prove that Buhari’s administration’s reforms, seen in its dogged fight against corruption, active transparency in government dealings, restoration of order and security in most parts of the country, especially in the North East, and improved access to justice, are bearing fruit.

The group further noted that the rule of law is fundamental to the development and growth of any society as it is the bedrock for citizen trust, confidence and participation in the democratic process of governance.

“President Buhari has shown a clear resolve to strengthen Nigeria’s democratic processes and institutions. He has not just stopped at that but has put his foot to work, to bring to fruition this resolve. And that is why today, respect for fundamental human rights, access to justice, security and transparency in government has improved,” the statement reads.

The group commended the Buhari’s administration’s exceptional use of digital media platform in proactively disseminating government’s policies, activities and responses.

BMSG further urged the Buhari administration not to rest on its oars as it does the undone, and charts the uncharted, in the bid to reform the Nigerian society, just as it called on Nigerians to support the government’s fight against corruption in all quarters.
