Dogara: Nigeria’s Major Problem Not Corruption But Leadership by sharpden: 3:41pm On May 07, 2019
Yakubu Dogara, the Speaker of the 8th House of Representatives has said contrary to believe in some quarters that corruption is the major problem facing the country, the lack of leadership is to be blamed for the country’s woes.

Mr Dogara stated this on Tuesday while addressing participants at a conference organised by the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Movement.

President Muhammadu Buhari has often emphasized on the need to rid the country of corrupt elements, saying they are the major problems of the country.

Mr Buhari’s war against corruption is said to be selective mainly targeted at opposition politicians.





A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, recently accused the president of promoting corruption in the country by refusing to probe his allies alleged to be corrupt.

“Nigeria’s real disease is lack of leadership; I disagree with all those who say our major national disease is financial corruption; rather, the real disease has been the absence of true leadership,” Dogara said.

The speaker also said lack of direction by leaders in the country encouraged fraudulent conduct.

“This in turn breeds moral corruption and wickedness. Get a true leader that solves moral corruption and wickedness; when that happens, you will search for financial corruption to no avail.



“Unfortunately, the leadership model we have practised so far is the kind of leadership that produces sycophants who are expected to serve their political godfathers and not the people,” he said.

The lawmaker also blamed godfatherism for some of the conduct of those elected into positions in the country.

“Our so-called leaders have mastered the art of political witchcraft so much so that if you are independent minded, you are automatically disqualified.

“If for any reason you are picked, then you have to surrender your soul for them to eat in small bites until you become their worshiper.

“In the midst of this pandemic sycophancy, the so-called godfathers expect the children to fit in and not to stand up to be counted or make a difference.

“For you, trailblazers who carry the burden and the promises of a generation that must not fail, if you are ever going to get there, it must be on the wings of discipline that produces character.

“This is because without character, you cannot be men and women of influence and without influence, you cannot change anything. Character means that you cannot be separated from your word — a quality no godfather in history has ever possessed,” he said.

To overcome the challenges, Dogara charged the youths to apply an all-inclusive politics because politics means reaching out to all and not to lose sight of the long-term goal of representing their people, state and country.

Hypocrisy 101.

If he had said corruption is not our only problem, I would have understood, but as it stands corruption has become enshrined in our DNA, that we don't seem to know what is wrong anymore, children doing expo is it a leadership problem, parents sorting for their kids is it a leadership problem, pump attendant adjusting meter is it a leadership problem, we have a host of problems, but corruption is at the forefront.

Our Parents , Society Style of education and religious sector have all failed and will continue to fail, until we tell ourselves the truth, " we are failures" accept that we are doing a lot of things wrong , only then can we chart a new path.

Leadership and corruption pls. Nigeria is sooo corrupt it is almost unbelievable. I know what I’m saying.


Dubai made it to where they are because they had good leadership and reduced/eliminated corruption. Having good leadership and grand corruption is like cutting a tree with a blunt axe. Development will take centuries.

The corrupt acts that lives inside them, is it corruption? Ohhh, it's stealing and not corruption as said by Jonathan. Oga dogara, take corruption out of the system and we will get leaders who are ready to serve. Let's get rid of the corruption which will make leadership unprofitable and as such they will be forced to serve.

One implies the other. They necessarily accompany one another, so corruption remains our major problem in Nigeria, to me.

Still trying to understand! 3 man of the country and 4th man of the country.

Are they not leaders ? who is to be blamed if not for them? They should be ashamed of themselves but do Nigeria politician no shame?

This is how bleeped up a country we are in. You are been voted into power to play the role of leaders, yet you are playing the blame game? for who? Sometimes i read news and i get sick to my stomach.

This country will get better but not this generation again.. Maybe few years before the end of the world because Corruption gives birth to bad leadership and bad followers!
