We are committed to fighting corruption - Osinbajo

26 June 2015, 07:35

Lagos - Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday reiterated the present administration's commitment to fighting corruption.

Osinbajo said this in Lagos at the 3rd Annual Christopher Kolade Lecture On Business Integrity.

Speaking on the topic "Beyond Compliance: Imbibing A Culture of Business Integrity'' it was not possible for anyone without integrity to still have integrity in his business.

"Integrity must reflect in behaviour, it is an accepted standard," he said.

Osinbajo said that the vision and mission of the present administration was to give meaning to the life of every Nigerian.

The vice-president said that the decision to fight corruption was in the interest of Nigeria and Nigerians.

In his remark, Dr Christopher Kolade lamented that Nigerians had almost resigned their to dominance of corruption in all sections of the nation's life.

"If we look at our society today, we have almost resigned to corruption.

"The world would be a better place if everyman can stand for integrity.

"Integrity is something that is meant to be natural to human being but with the situation of the country it is hard to practise integrity," he said.

Kolade, however, said that it was possible to be a man of integrity to still get to the top.
