Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has revealed that corruption remains one of the biggest problems preventing total growth and development in Nigeria.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Laolu Akande, on Monday in Abuja, Osinbajo said the poor economic growth was as a result of certain individuals or groups who have enriched themselves with the wealth of the nation.
However, he stated that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is working round the clock to ensure that those involve in the act of corruption are made to face the wrath of the law.
“The greatest problem Nigeria has is one of grand corruption. That is the biggest problem we have, not the problem of planning or plans. And grand corruption is the reason why we are not moving as fast as we should in our country.
“There is no country in the world that can survive if its resources are stolen the way Nigeria’s resources are stolen.”
