Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says corrupt people pervades the social, economic, political and religious spheres of the country. According to him, people seem to be united in corruption and would protect the identity of one another.
“We need a new tribe of men and women of all faith, tribes and ethnicities; committed to a country run on high values of integrity, hard work, justice and love for the country,” the VP said in his keynote address at the annual dinner of Apostles in the Market Place. “A tribe of men and women who are prepared to make the sacrifices crucial to building a strong society; who are prepared to stick together, and insist on justice even when our friends are at the receiving end.
“When you look at any list of alleged perpetrators of a heinous cases of corruption, all tribes, ethnicities and religions are well represented. In other words, high level corruption knows no religion or ethnicity.
“Such perpetrators and conspirators are in governments, the legislature, the judiciary and the press. They are united, they protect each other.”
“I have had several long discussions with President Buhari. The key issue always is finding the right persons for any task. A tough task, indeed, in a corrupted system,” Osinbajo said.
