Deputy Senate President was on Tuesday decorated anti- corruption ambassador by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
Speaking while a team of EFCC officials led by the National Assembly Liaison Officer, Suleiman Bakari in his office, Ekweremadu said that if war against corruption must be achieved in all its ramifications, there was the urgent need for the establishment of Special Anti- Corruption Courts.
According to him, setting up of such courts would help reduce the burden on regular courts and fast-track trial of corruption cases.
He said, setting up Special Courts was one of the surest ways to help in the fight against corruption, as that would also help ensure speedy adjudication of corruption cases.
Ike Ekweremadu is a Nigeran politician and lawyer from Enugu State who has served in the Senate of Nigeria since May 2003. He is a member of the People’s Democratic Party and is currently Deputy President of the Nigerian Senate for the third consecutive time.
