SHOCKING: See What Kogi Gov Calls Corruption by Nobody: 12:50pm On Oct 03, 2016
Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has reiterated the commitment of his administration to make anti-corruption a “governance culture” in the state.

The governor who stated this in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Petra Akinti Onyegbule, said that his administration will enthrone a systemic decimation of corruption in the state.

Bello carpeted corrupt leaders as “anti-people and anti-development”, calling on the people of the state to key into the anti-corruption drive of his administration.

He stated: “We are prepared to lead by example. Our government is putting in place institutional framework that will make corruption a sociological leprosy. We have given government officials our blueprint as our social contract with the people of Kogi State.

“An indispensable pillar of our New Direction Agenda is good governance. Good governance is about synergy between our government and our people to do things right and govern with probity, accountability and transparency. We must always strive to achieve development.

“My administration will not only fight corruption in the system, but also in the minds of the citizens, in the minds of school children. I have directed the ministry of education to ensure we have anti-corruption clubs in our schools.

“Corruption is a thing of the mind. We must change our orientation against ill-gotten wealth. Our society must stop honouring those who steal monies meant for road construction, drugs in our public health institutions and quality education in our schools”.

He warned public office holders to refrain from yielding to the temptation of corruption, saying his administration will not only expose corrupt officials, but also ensure that they are prosecuted.

He said it has become necessary to probe into why contracts failed in the state, saying any contractor who had been paid must return to site to complete their jobs.
