25 November 2016, 11:34

Abuja - Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (retd) has revealed that the reason the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is having problem is due to corruption, Punch reports.

Gowon spoke at the Northern Nigeria Stakeholders’ Town Hall Engagement organised by CITA- NGO at Arewa House, Kaduna.

The former Head of State noted that corruption was responsible for the deterioration of the quality of infrastructure, healthcare delivery among others in the country.

This, Gowon noted, had robbed the government of the respect and loyalty of the citizens and eroded the authority of the state.

Gowon stated, “Truth be told, the fight against corruption is a fight that we must overcome, we must win it and win it decisively according to Naij.

“Corruption has also caused deterioration in the quality of infrastructure, healthcare delivery and education among others.”

The former Nigerian leader said the current economic situation facing the country was one of the most troubling economic crisis ever.
