About $500 billion had been lost to corruption in the country from 1960 till date. This was the submission of former Minister of External Affairs, Professor Bolaji Akinyemi during the one day Minna National Discourse on corruption.

Professor-Bolaji-Akinyemi-300x173According to the former envoy, the raising insecurity in some parts of the north, the militancy in the south- south and the kidnapping for ransom in the south-east are all the consequences of the high level of corruption that has rocked the nation for many years.

The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamido, who chaired the event, told the gathering that contrary to the wide held belief, corruption is not the greatest problem confronting the country but the lack of general framework for accountability in all sphere of our national life.

Also speaking at the event the Minister and deputy chairman National Planning Commission, Shamsudeen Usman noted that until the issue of corruption is tackled headlong the nation’s Vision 202020 would just be a mirage.

Have clean hands, mouth, conscience before preaching to others – Akinyemi tells Obasanjo PDF Print E-mail

August 14, 2013. Source:African Spotlight (‎) 

(Video on;v=mj3EouGugoc )

On Tuesday, Obasanjo said if Nigerians are yet to commend a leader after 53 years of independence, “Then we are jinxed and cursed; we should all go to hell.”

Obasanjo also condemned the younger generation of leaders in the country, saying they lack integrity and probity and have failed their people woefully.

Reacting to the comments, Akinyemi said; “Have the old leaders done better? All leaders are to be condemned in Nigeria. I am not going to categorize along generational parameters to define behaviour. All leaders have fallen short of expectations. Problems are not created over night. All these problems have always been ignored by leaders in office. If leaders have done what hey should have done when they were in office we would not be where we are today. People who preach to others should have clean hands and a clean conscience and a clean mouth. If you’re going to preach to others, make sure you are preaching from a position that gives credibility.”
