    STATE HOUSE PRESS RELEASE
    PRESIDENT BUHARI DIRECTS
    IMPLEMENTATION OF EO 6 IN FULL FORCE

    Following the instant judicial
    affirmation of the constitutionality and
    legality of the Executive Order 6 (EO6),
    President Muhammadu Buhari has
    mandated the Attorney-General of the
    Federation and the Minister of Justice to
    implement the Order in full force.
    To this end, a number of enforcement
    procedures are currently in place by
    which the Nigeria Immigration Service
    and other security agencies have placed
    no fewer than 50 high profile persons
    directly affected by EO6 on watch-list
    and restricted them from leaving the
    county pending the determination of
    their cases.
    Also, the financial transactions of these
    persons of interest are being monitored
    by the relevant agencies to ensure that
    the assets are not dissipated and such
    persons do not interfere with, nor
    howsoever corrupt the investigation
    and litigation processes.
    It is instructive to note that EO6 was
    specifically directed to relevant law
    enforcement agencies to ensure that all
    assets within a minimum value of N50
    million or equivalent, subject to
    investigation or litigation are protected
    from dissipation by employing all
    available lawful means, pending the
    final determination of any corruption-
    related matter.
    The Buhari administration reassures all
    well-meaning and patriotic Nigerians of
    its commitment to the fight against
    corruption, in accordance with the 1999
    Constitution (as amended) and the
    general principles of the Rule of Law.
    Accordingly, this administration will
    uphold the rule of law in all its actions
    and the right of citizens would be
    protected as guaranteed by the
    Constitution.
    We, therefore, enjoin all Nigerians to
    cooperate with the law enforcement
    authorities towards ensuring a
    successful implementation of the
    Executive Order 6 which is a paradigm-
    changing policy of the Federal
    Government in the fight against
    corruption.
