The Vice President of the nation, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said that Nigeria has been badly governed but that now there is light at the end of the tunnel.
He said this in a statement adding that there is no country that would have gone through all that Nigeria has gone through in terms of corruption and stealing and not pay the consequences.
The statement was made while receiving a delegation of the Northern States Pentecostal Bishops Forum in his office at the Presidential Villa.
He said, “This country has been badly governed. We are dealing for instance with the embezzlement of funds to the tune of $15B in one sector alone.”
On the question on why speaking about the past is important, he said, “We have to, that is why we are here.”
“We have not turned attention to the oil and gas sector, where the former CBN Governor alleged that $20B was stolen. We must condemn and stand up against this level of corruption. It is the single most important reason of the current state of the country. We can’t ignore it.”
He urged Christian leaders to be bold in the face of corruption and not be afraid to call it out, “we can’t say because they are Christians or Muslims we won’t condemn those involved in corruption.”
