Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has said that all corrupt leaders must be punished through death sentences, adding that it is the only way corruption can be effectively tackled.
He made the statement during a news conference organised by the “Occupy Unlimited” group, a civil society group that advocates good governance and corruption-free society.
Charly Boy, who is the National Coordinator of the group, said “corrupt leadership has been killing ordinary Nigerians slowly and steadily over the years.
“It is time to properly define it as ‘murder in disguise’, and treat as treasonable offence against our dear country.
“Over 180 million people are surviving at the mercy of few politicians who have mastered the art of creating division among her own people through religion, ethnicity, corruption, and frivolous issues.”
Charly Boy explained that the Group will on Nov. 15 stage a peaceful anti-corruption protest in the Federal Capital Territory to tell political leaders that they must be accountable and selfless in their service to the fatherland.
“This is a process of holding politicians accountable not only to their promises, but in their service to the Nigerian nation.
“The mass protest will begin at the Unity Fountain in Abuja down to the National Assembly.
“We are a coalition of ordinary Nigerians from different parts of the country, with no political affiliations; we believe in the interest of our country.
“We also believe strongly in the fight against corruption by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
