Nigeria badly governed says Osinbajo

07 September 2016, 13:19

Abuja - Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday lamented that the country had been badly governed and systematically destroyed, Daily Trust reports.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, made this assertion on Tuesday while receiving a delegation of the Northern States Pentecostal Bishops Forum in his office at the Presidential Villa, assuring however that even though the times are hard today, “there is great hope that this country will prosper.”

According to his spokesman, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo said, “this country has been badly governed. We are dealing for instance with the embezzlement of funds to the tune of $15B in one sector alone. “

Continuing, Prof. Osinbajo observed that there are those who are asking ‘why talking about the past’ and he posed a response: “We have to, that is why we are here according to Leadership.

“We have not turned attention to the oil and gas sector, where the former CBN Governor alleged that $20B was stolen. We must condemn and stand up against this level of corruption. It is the single most important reason of the current state of the country. We can’t ignore it.”

The Vice President then called on Christian and religious leaders generally in the country to condemn corruption “openly.” He added that “we can’t say because they are Christians or Muslims we wont condemn those involved in corruption.”
