How We Will Fight Corruption – Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has disclosed how the present regime will fight corruption; strengthen relevant institutions.

He also restated the resolve of President Muhammadu ‎Buhari to recover all looted funds and fight corruption to a standstill.


Speaking in Ibadan on Thursday at a conference on corruption held at the University of Ibadan entitled, “The Predicament of Corruption and the Quest for Holistic Development in Africa”‎, the All Progressives Congress government said to achieve this, all relevant institutions would be strengthened.”

Speaking further, the vice president said the government will improve sanctions and enforcement as well as uphold the rule of law.

Osinbajo, who was represented by the Secretary, Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye, noted that teaching was critical to building minds and nations.

Speaking earlier, the Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe Foundation called on the Federal Government to replicate the resolution of the United Nations (UN) on teaching Philosophy from secondary schools level in the country adding that this would boost the on-going anti-corruption efforts.

Coordinator-General of the federation, Mr Charles Anyiam-Osigwe, said the implementation would be an impetus that would help in fighting corruption.


Anyiam-Osigwe added that the late Osigwe Anyiam-Osigwe’s philosophical thought on building a society free of corrupt practices was crucial to the current efforts of the current Federal Government to rid Nigeria of corruption.

According to him, tackling corruption is only an aspect of issues that undermine Africa’s development.

“We opine that there has never been development without the philosophical compass. Transcending the primitive stage of early human existence, development evolved from the contemplative insights of thinking minds in our early societies,” he said.
