Institutional corruption is Nigeria’s Major problem
..Nigeria needs Revolution
– Bishop Bankole Jefferson
As the war against corruption by the present administration of President Muhammad Buhari continue, a clergyman and the general overseer of Mercy Tebanacle, ogba Lagos Nigeria, Bishop Bankole Jefferson has advised the government to also look at ways to tackle institutional corruption saying that is also one of the major factors that defiled the fight against corruption in the country.
Speaking at a Sunday service in his church, the man of God said various government institutions needed to be thoroughly examined, he sighted an example like the Nigeria police force which needs to be restructured to curtail corruption, he said the institution is difficult to be checkmate because people are scared to reveal their atrocities to the appropriate authorities for prosecution. The clergyman said if someone report a case at any police station but because that person is not rich, his or her legitimate case might be turned around to favour the accused, while the complainant will turn to be the accused, this he said is the order of the day in many police stations just because of their selfish interest.
Bishop Bankole Jefferson emphasized that revolution in the country will bring to nearest minimum the menace of corruption in the country.
He also remarked that it is high time the youths in the country rose up to their responsibilities and fight for their position in governance by saying enough is enough to all the old recycled politicians in the country.
The man of God said it is only God that can rescue Nigeria out of corruption by our leaders,
“this country has rendered the youths unproductive, many youths now take to crime to survive, in countries like Dubai, no youth does manual job, they are all gainfully employed, that is why if you lose any of your property, you find it within 48hour, why because every youth is self sufficient “.
In Nigeria reverse is the case, there is no security of life and property. No job for the youths, I thinks is high time the youths called for revolution and any leader or political office holder found wanting, he/she should be handcuffed and dumped inside the red sea to serve as a deterrent to others.
Bishop Bankole Jefferson in his submission said Nigeria is at it’s hard end because of institutional corruption.
For democracy, which is the government of the people, by the people and for the people to be achieved, the youths must fight for their right through revolution so that the country can come back to its old glory.
