"Will the President and the National Assembly make amendments to the law to give it the teeth that it does not currently have?"

The answer to the question above is no because it would be an error on their part to give the law the teeth that it might one day use to bite them seeing that they are all guilty of stealing from the national treasury and the possibility of being prosecuted once they are out of office cannot be ruled out

"Corruption is not the problem in Nigeria, it is the peoples attitude"- President Jonathan. When the leaders of the nation are incapable of understanding what the needs of the nation are, weak laws to encourage criminal conducts are passed. Yes, sentencing was per guidelines but the judge should not have offered the option to pay fine. He should have sentenced him to prison plus the fine to send a message that we are not tolerating stealing any longer. What kind of message does this sentence send?
Will the president and the national assembly make amendments to the law to give it the teeth that it does not currently have? Waite a minute; per our president, corruption is not the problem we just have to change our attitude and start celebrating criminology. What a country.
