Corrupt persons won’t be spared – Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday vowed that the federal government would not spare anyone indicted for corruption and other corrupt practices.

Osinbajo also assured that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration would begin the implementation of all its campaign promises immediately the 2016 budget is signed into law.

He stated this while commissioning Ayetoro township roads in Yewa North local government area of the state in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the creation of the state.

The number two citizen said corruption which had ravaged the country had made it impossible for government at all levels to provide the necessary infrastructure.

He lamented that, “if not for the high incidence of corruption that has ravaged the nation’s economy, the country would have been buoyant enough to put in place the necessary infrastructure and provide succour to its citizens without any let or hindrance.”

According to him, “the development of our country should be of utmost importance to all of us. We should continue to proclaim it loud that corruption should not be tolerated.

“We have to keep saying it everywhere that no corrupt person would go scot-free. Whoever is involved and whatever his status is, he must answer for such wrongs done. We have to keep proclaiming that everywhere.

“The federal government wants to do more for Nigerians, especially in the area of micro-finance and micro-credit schemes, but corruption has been the bane of our development. We need money and funds to do all these things.”

Osinbajo urged the people to continue to support Governor Ibikunle Amosun administration in his effort to develop the state while advising the state government to ensure even development across the state.
