The Civil Liberties Organisation Tuesday asked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to stop receiving those with corruption cases at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa. 

At a press briefing in Abuja, President of CLO, Igho Akeregha and the Executive Director, Ibuchukwu Ezike, said welcoming those with corruption cases is dangerous to efforts towards rebuilding the country.

“The CLO is urging Nigerians to keep vigil over our hard-won democracy as the regular visits and hobnobbing of former governors and corrupt politicians with Tinubu at the seat of power is a clear and present danger to efforts to rebuild our battered country,” Akeregha said.

He also noted that some of those visiting the president at the villa had been charged to court by various anti-graft agencies. 

“We appeal to President Tinubu whose election is being seriously challenged at the election petitions court to not convert the highest office of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria into a rehabilitation centre for politicians who put the country in this sorry state,” he said.
