Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has bemoaned the fact that corruption is prevalent in all sectors, religions and ethnic groups in Nigeria.
The VP said from Nigeria requires a ‘new tribe of men and women’ who are committed to making sacrifices to achieve a strong, corruption-free society.
Speaking on Sunday, at the annual dinner of Apostles in the Market Place, Osinbajo delivered a keynote address on A New Tribe, the Vice President said perpetrators of corruption are united and they protect each other.

“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.”

“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.”
