Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says that the anti-corruption fight of this present administration should not be seen as one directed at a particular ethnic group in the country. Osinbajo said this when some Yoruba traditional rulers paid him a courtesy visit at the state House yesterday August 27th.
“You hear people saying that the reason that man is being tried for corruption is because he is Yoruba, he is from the North, and he is from South South. We must not encourage those kinds of ideas. If a person steals, he ought to be punished and made to return what he has stolen because the money does not belong to him. The money is what is to be used for the training of our young people, who are in school or hospital and for the building of roads. There is no family in Yoruba land that allows thieves. If you are a thief, we will expose you. We should support the effort of the administration to fight corruption ” he said
