We Have Stopped ‘grand’ Corruption In Nigeria - Osinbajo by cute9ja: 12:44pm On Nov 04, 2018
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday in Sokoto said the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government has stopped the ‘grand corruption’ that characterised the system in the past.

Similarly, Osinbajo seized the space to also absolve the executive of interference in the affairs of the legislature saying that it has always observed absolute restraint.

“There has never been attempt by this government in any guise to impede on the National Assembly. Governor Tambuwal who was then Speaker will not forget how he scaled the fence by acrobatic means to get into the assembly complex.

“I was Attorney General of Lagos State when the executive withheld our funds. All these were absolute impunity, threat and undue interference which are now in the past with the coming of this government”, he stated.

According to him in the past, governors and legislators ýwere under severe interference and threats by the executives. He said there has been significant change with positive and far reaching effect in reforms through democratic means, “We have been able to actualise and domesticate financial autonomy of the judiciary as an important integral arm of government.”

Osinbajo made the remarks at the 2018 annual lecture organised by the Barewa Old Boys Association ahead of its centenary celebrations slated for 2021.

According to the Vice President, before the current administration, the country experienced a lot of impunity, adding “We knew when the executive approved direct stealing and collection of huge sums from the public treasury to the tune of $297 million in a single swing.”

He enumerated the various areas through which the federal government intervention schemes have grossly impacted the citizenry to include the N-Power, Anchor borrower, conditional cash ýtransfer, school feeding and other beneficial entrepreneurial and skills acquisition empowerment ventures.

Osinbajo however, described BOBA as a social entity which has produced brilliant and dependable leaders with vision for a prosperous nation.

He extolled the visionary greatness of products of the Barewa College, citing examples with late Sir Ahmadu Bello for galvanising the north into the national system as an incredible foresight; Tafawa Balewa who stood for better Nigeria with federal identity and unity; Malam Aminu Kanoý who also stood and fought to stem social justice; Murtala Muhammed with ethical and moral discipline while Yakubu Gowon rooted his mission for ‘No victor, no vanquish to re-integrate the country after the civil war as well Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari among others who fly the BOBA banner to constantly reflect their strides on Nigeria’s history and development to remedy and redeem the county’s democracy.

In his remarks, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal noted that the issue of good governance was a critical and necessary aspect to the country’s democracy.

But remember he is a sitting governor, with some immunity, so he can't be arrested/summouned immediately. Even Fayose couldn't be arrested till after his tenure, APC will not be stupid not to question him, that will show clear double standards, i heard the Kano Assembly are questioning him already tho

Let's wait and see

He has immunity. Only his state assembly can sack him. Buhari's deputy is a professor of law and a senior advocate of Nigeria not a nuisance with ordinary diploma from Adamawa. Buhari will not break the law and usurp state assembly roles like Obasanjo and his illetrate deputy Atikuloot.

Did you see Buhari arrest Fayose despite all evidences against Fayose when Fayose was still governor? Unlike Obasanjo that removed Fayose, Joshua Dariye, DSP Alamesiagha illegally.

You stopped the grand corruption and introduced the GREAT GRAND CORRUPTION.

Truly PDP is an apprentice to APC when it comes to the issues of corruption!

Still CANNOT shake off the fact that PDP borrowed 7trillion in 16years and APC borrowed 12trillion in 3 years shocked shocked shocked

To think that he is the attorney general of Lagos then where Tinubu the grand patron is of corruption is nauseating

Abeg make una do go 2019 is at hand!

“Nigeria had in the past faced so much challenges of corruption in public offices with a lot of government money being stolen by individuals which the present administration blocked such instances,” he said.

So I guess this include all the mind boggling corruption of the APC government that Osinbajo is part of? From Abba Kyari, Maina, Lawal Babachir, Lawal Daura, NHIS sec, Mikanti Baru, Mrs.Buhari, Lai's #13M MOI scandal, Akpabio, OUK, Obanikoro and the latest Gov.Ganduje dollar bribe scandal/BMO soliciting contracts among the numerous unprobed corruption of this regime.

Osinbajo is simply a hypocrite and disgrace. angry

The only thing that reduced corruption is GEJ TSA AND BVN.
GMB/OSINBAJO has no working system,
Sincerity can not take country to anywhere but working system.
All the huge money generated by MDAs like JAMB, CUSTOMS are all effect of GEJ"s TSA
Corruption reduction is effect of BVN.
GEJ's Card Reader reduced rigging during election
However thanks to GMB for the implementation of TSA and BVN.
MY point is that only system put in place can turn around this country.

In a sane country, Ganduje would have resigned for the law to take its place.

What is the use of BVN reducing corruption, when Billions of dollars meant for fighting Boko Haram was shared among PDP chieftains?

Grand, grander, grandest. So we have moved to the next level called 'grander corruption'. Now that votes have become cash and carry at the polling units, the president got the position without even Standard 6 not to talk of WAEC, Fashola has failed with electricity, the political rich are getting richer. After grander it will be grandest. Hopefully our PVCs will stop you before you impoverish everyone.
