President Goodluck Jonathan once again in faraway Windhoek, Namibia, reiterated his position that the issue of corruption in Nigeria had been blown out of proportion and the development was already battering the country’s image.

Speaking at a meeting with the Nigerian community in Namibia held at the Country Club, Windhoek on Thursday, the Nigerian president said, “corruption is everywhere” but it is over-celebrated in the country to the extent that the nation and its people were being stigmatized.

Jonathan, who is on a two-day state visit to Namibia, stressed that while his administration would not condone corruption, wielding the big stick would also not provide a solution to the menace.

He said in fighting corruption, government had continued to strengthen the relevant institutions in nipping the menace in the bud.

President Jonathan, in lending credence to this line of argument, said despite the enactment of decrees and relevant laws stipulating capital punishment for armed robbery, the menace had not stopped.

He, therefore, called on every Nigerian to resolve to do the right thing and support the government in its efforts at building a new Nigeria.

He assured the people that if all hands were put on deck and the citizens cooperated with the government, the nation would be completely transformed in the next 10 years.

“The green passport should be a symbol of honour, respect and dignity, not humiliation”, he said.

He stressed that Nigeria was a great country and with certain definite steps the administration was taking, it would take its rightful position on the world stage.

The president also assured the gathering that with all the political tension being created by the opposition in the country, he would not play politics with the development of the nation.
