Corruption In Executive Far More Than Legislature, Judiciary Combined, Says ICPC by phranklean: 5:58pm On Apr 08, 2019
The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Professor Bolaji Owasanoye, has said corruption in the executive is far more than that of the legislature and judiciary combined.

He said this was because the executive spends a far bigger chunk of the money appropriated.

The anti-corruption agency boss also said that the public perception of the National Assembly members as being corrupt would not go away until the legislature throw open its yearly budget to the public.

The Spokesperson for the Commission, Mrs. Rasheedat A. Okoduwa, quoted Professor Owasanoye as stating this during a lecture at the 9th National Assembly induction programme for new legislators, in Abuja.
In the lecture titled ‘’The Legislature and Fight against Graft and Corruption’’, the ICPC boss who spoke on the alleged huge allowances of the National Assembly members and the controversial issue of constituency projects, said that the public perception of legislators as being corrupt would not go away until the National Assembly throws open its yearly budget to the public.

He stressed that the execution of the National Assembly budget, which has grown exponentially from N6.9 billion in 1999 to about N139 billion in 2018 for the same number of legislators has remained shrouded in secrecy, thereby giving room for allegations of abuse and misappropriation of the funds.

According to him, “It is believed that we have the highest paid legislators representing the poorest people in the world. Since 1999, NASS budget has increased without defensible legal or moral justification. Without increase in membership and addition of only one or two agencies, NASS budget grew from N6.9 billion 1999 to N139 billion in 2018.

"The problem is that it is just a single line item. The public is hardly told the breakdown and how it is used. The criticisms will disappear if we are told how it is spent.”

Corruption is a way of life in Nigeria.

It even exists in the smallest unit of the society which is the family.

If you doubt me try this experiment;


Get a government job.
Depend on your 140k salary.
Don't embezzle money, don't steal money!

Absolutely correct...The corruption in the Executive is teice that of the Legislative and Judiciary combined,that is why some of us are not deceived when Executive crooks like the APC-run Government deceive themselves they are ridding the Judiciary and Legislative of "corruption",meanwhile it is mere political beef.

That's not true ma. I blame the mods for not vetting the post properly before putting it here with a misleading title. This man never said the coreuption in the executive is far more than that of the legislature and judiciary combined. This is even nor logically right cos the executive gets a far lower budgetary allocation than the legislature and the budgeary spend on line items are well spelt out even though monies allocated to some items may be questionable high. On the other hand,the budgetary allocation of the legislature is shrouded in utmost secrecy and attempts has been made by several human rights groups from 1999 to 2018 to make them reveal this but all has been futile. Till date, nobody (including the president and some members of the executive ) knows exactly how much a senator and a house of reps member earns per month. Our legislators are the most expensive in the world. It's just a sad country we live in!

I worked and stayed in Abuja for some years before my recent posting to Lagos,threfore i can tell you for free that the Executive is as neck-deep in corruption as the Legistlative and Judiaciary perheps even more considering their scope and direct impact to life if the average man on the street..

Therefore singling the Legislative or Judiaciary out because of parochial interests while the Executive run wild like she has been doing is the bane of this country...

I am not defending the Legislature and Judiciary to be honest,but i feel that a holistic approach to the "corrupt fight" will yield better positive result...not the circus we have been saddled with for eons.
Re: Corruption In Executive Far More Than Legislature, Judiciary Combined, Says ICPC by smeag0l(m): 7:19pm On Apr 08, 2019
Well, even though the executive profited a lot from the excess crude account from 2003 to 2015 because the account has no books but the legislature is still the most corrupt. Imagine that majorit of the bills Buhari rejected last month were because they were adding 1% and 2% of tax payers money as funds to foot those bills when there are ministries and parastatals that already do same jobs. Add this to their constituency allowance which is meant for projects in their constituency but which are not eexcited. We don't even know how much their constituency allowances are to start with.There's no way the executive can be more corrupt than the legislature even under any president we've had.
