(BBC) – Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed a committee to advise him on how best to tackle corruption and reform the legal system.
The seven-member Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption is mostly made up of academics.
Mr. Buhari was elected in May, largely on a promise to tackle corruption.
He has said he believes government officials have stolen about $150bn (£96bn) from the public purse over the past decade.
“The committee’s brief is to advise the present administration on the prosecution of the war against corruption and the implementation of required reforms in Nigeria’s criminal justice system,” said presidential spokesman Femi Adesina.
