President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said his administration will put incentives and policies in place that will make corruption unattractive for judges and other Nigerian workers.

Tinubu made the pledge on Thursday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, during the inauguration of Magistrates’ Court Complex built by Governor Wike.

He said with the right incentives that guarantee conducive working atmosphere and polices that make it easy for workers to acquire credit facilities for essential needs the temptation for corruption would reduce.

“You don’t expect your judges to live in squalor, to operate in squalor and dispense justice in squalor. This is part of the changes that are necessary. We must fight corruption but we must definitely look at the other side of the coin.

” If you don’t want your judges to be corrupt you got to pay attention to their welfare. You don’t want them to operate in hazardous conditions,” he said.

The president-elect said lack of consumer credit which could make it easy for workers to acquire property such as houses and cars make them susceptible to corruption.

“If you have consumer credit that will reduce the propensity for corruption. We don’t want our judges to play foul, to compromise justice. I promise we are going to review all of these in a policy think tank.”
