Written by Smooth FM on August 26, 2019
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, says new executive orders will be issued to tackle international fraud.
His comments came few days after the United States authorities announced charges against 80 people, mostly Nigerians, in fraud and money laundering operations that netted millions of dollars from victims of internet fraud.
“The government will generate and ask for new laws from the National Assembly and there will be new executive orders that will block some of these loopholes that have been exploited by our fellow countrymen to go out there and embarrass and black-paint the country,” he said.
The president’s media aide also said, “every citizen of this country who travels out of the country, is required to obey the laws of their host countries,” adding that “the government would not stand in the way of the justice system.”
