Citizens Gavel, a civic tech organization accelerating the pace of justice delivery through tech, data, free legal aid and legal empowerment has commended the investigation done by Fisayo Soyombo which exposed the corrupt practices in the judicial system.
In a press release signed by Taiwo Makanjuola, Communications Associate, Citizens’ Gavel, the investigation was described as a courageous act capable of improving the impact of justice delivery in Nigeria.
The Tech Organization therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to celebrate distinguished individuals who have worked hard in helping in the anti-corruption fight especially the likes of Fisayo Soyombo whose life was at risk while exposing corruption.
She said, “this gives Nigerians and whistleblowers the encouragement to own the anti-corruption fight and ensure that they do not receive backlash from individuals or entities who have been indicted.
“We wish to state categorically that our organization stands with Fisayo Soyombo and will provide all necessary legal resources to protect him. It should be noted that the public perception of uniform officers in Nigeria is negative already and this must not be made worse”, she added.
