Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi Says Every Nigerian Is Corrupt

Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi believes that ever Nigerian on every level is corrupt in one way or the other, Herald reports.

Speaking to newsmen at the National Secretariat of the All Pro­gressives Congress (APC), Abuja the Ajimobi said that whether by financial misconduct, attitudinal cor­ruption or the inability to re­straint oneself from certain corrupt acts.

He said,  “We are looking at corruption in a global per­spective as against just tak­ing money. If you look at it generally, you will see that almost every Nigeria is corrupt, almost everybody is corrupt in one way or the other either attitudinally , fi­nancially or socially  and this, we believe should be looked into.

“We believe corruption is more than just taking money, I think it is attitudinal. Any­time you do what you are not supposed to do, is corruption. Sometime you can even en­large it to mean indiscipline, inability to control yourself, to discipline yourself against selfish tendencies of wanting to take what does not belong to you. Even not doing your job is corruption, for taking salaries monthly and not coming to work and being idle is corruption.”
