The outgoing European Union (EU) Ambassador to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Dr David MacRea, has advised the federal government to take the anti-corruption fight seriously beyond what it is presently.
MacRea stated this at a farewell interactive session with journalists at EU mission in Abuja yesterday.
According to the envoy, "Nigeria has to deal seriously with what is known as immunity clause, it seems just few offender are been punish while the real people who commit the offence go away with it.
"It is regrettable that corruption in Nigeria is not going down and it is affecting the entire country, I am not saying that Nigeria is the worst country; you still find so many good things in Nigeria. I am also happy that the government is taking very serious steps to deal with the issue of corruption," he noted.
Speaking on the EU aid to Nigeria, MacRea decried the delay over the execution of projects in the country saying "Many projects take too long to execute, because this does not go down well with some of these villagers whom these projects are been targeted at and they end up waiting for too long".
