PRESS RELEASE

WE HAVE TO COMPLETELY DELEGITIMISE CORRUPTION, VP OSINBAJO SAYS

Anti-Corruption agencies in the country have been urged to step up their engagement with the Nigerian public especially because there are still those who think when a politician who is their kinfolk steals, it is permissible.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, made the observation earlier today while meeting with a delegation of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC led by its Chairman, Prof. Itse Sagay at the Presidential Villa.

“How we communicate what is going on regarding corruption is important. There are still those who think a politician who steals, is some kind of Robin Hood, instead of being vilified,” Prof Osinbajo noted.

He added that “some people believe that if ‘my kinsman’ steals it is ok,” stressing that it is important to completely delegitimise corruption especially through the way it is communicated.

He praised the work of PACAC. “I commend the excellent work you have done so far from the beginning,” he told the PACAC delegation, adding that the Committee has done very well removing skepticism as to whether an anti-corruption initiative can work well in the country.

“This has been very good,” the Vice President declared, explaining that the Committee has given credibility to the anti-corruption war.

While expressing satisfaction that the anti-corruption war has been going on very well, especially with the role of PACAC, the Vice President also noted that it is important that corruption trials once commenced should be concluded promptly.

In his comments at the meeting, Prof. Sagay said PACAC has engaged with all anti-corruption agencies in the country, including the police and the judiciary. “We are cooperating effectively well with them,” he disclosed.

Sagay who was accompanied by the Executive Secretary of the Committee, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye and members including Hadiza Bala-Usman, Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, called for an harmonized National Anti-Corruption Strategy for the Federal Government.

Exactly, such that Abba Kyari and Babachir Lawal have no fear again about blatantly engaging in it.

Such that Buratai has no fear in publicly declaring his stolen wealth and getting executive endorsement for it.

Yes, corruption has been completely delegitimized by you and your govt sir.

When you and your govt are yet to delegitimize it, is it me that will do it for you?
Congrats

You mean National reorientation and making citizens believe they are Nigerians first?

You mean getting a revenue sharing formula which States won't feel they need someone to urgument it for them?

You mean getting pension and other social security working so that there is no need to steal?

You mean making the system soo strong that people who are born to steal won't have the opportunity?

You mean making the police and antigraft agency effective that those who have opportunity to steal would be caught?

You mean having s strong judicial and prosecution system so that justice would not be mocked?

Oga we need go down to the root first, it's not mere political exercise.

All guyz are waiting for is for the strong man to leave soo they keep exploiting the weak system.

Nice

The difference is always clear when you have a serious government in place. Wailers can wail all they want they can cry us a river for all we care but we are damn certain that "Stealing is now CORRUPTION".

Clean house first then you might gain some credibility.

At the moment it's very hard to believe someone who says that they are fighting corruption when their allies are Tinubu, Amaechi, El-Rufai, Buratai and the various criminals who (even now) are stealing resources meant for IDPs.
