Corruption becoming more difficult to curb in Nigeria – Osinbajo


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has predicted, that the fight against corruption will continue to get more difficult daily.

He said, it would get to a point that many people would become discouraged to stand up against corruption.

This was stated in his address at the 20th-anniversary regional webinar, organised by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Offences Commission.

The webinar was titled, “Combating corruption and illicit financial flows: New measures and strategies.”

The Vice-President said , “The fight against corruption is nuanced and hydra-headed, it is not going to get easier by the day; as a matter of fact, it will get more difficult by the day and many will become discouraged in standing up against corruption.

“But it is our duty both as individuals and institutions, especially in developing countries where corruption has such a devastating effect, to ensure that we prioritise the fight against corruption and continually devise new ways and new approaches even as the hydra-headed problem itself continues to manifest in different ways.”

Osinbajo also said that,  the regime of the President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had been demonstrating the political will and support for anti-corruption measures, which, he knew, had afforded all anti-corruption agencies in the country the latitude to do their work without interference.
