“All arms of government are corrupt” – Osinbajo
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that all the three arms of government – executive, legislature and the judiciary – are corrupt, saying that the country needs to stamp out the cankerworm with vigorous reorientation. He also vowed that the federal government will not spare any sector of the economy in the anti-graft war.
Osinbajo, who stated this yesterday in Ado Ekiti during the 2016 convocation of Afe Babalola University (ABUAD) in Ado Ekiti, described corruption as being “too endemic to be overlooked.”
Osinbajo attributed the high level of poverty and many other problems bedeviling the country to the direct consequences of corruption that had permeated every sector of the economy.
While responding to a request of Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, to inject the airport project in the 2017 appropriation bill, the vice president said the state deserved it, adding that the federal government will continue to support every project that will fast-track development in each of the states of the federation.
