Why FG won’t spare looters — Osinbajo

ABEOKUTA —Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo yesterday said the Federal Government would not spare anyone indicted for corruption and other corrupt practices. Osinbajo lamented that if not for the high incidence of corruption that has ravaged the nation’s economy, the country would have been buoyant enough to put in place the necessary infrastructure. The Vice President , who spoke while inaugurating the Ota township roads in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area and the Ayetoro township roads in Yewa North Local Government Area of the state in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the creation of the state , also assured that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration would begin the implementation of all its campaign promises immediately the 2016 budget is signed into law.. Osinbajo, who represented President muhammadu Buhari during his two-day official visit to the state on Monday and Tuesday had inaugurated only four of the 40 projects earmarked for the event, said corruption, which had ravaged the country had made it impossible for government at all levels to provide the necessary infrastructure. Speaking in Yoruba, the vice president told the people of Ayetoro that “the development of our country should be of utmost importance to all of us. We should continue to proclaim it loud that corruption should not be tolerated. We have to keep saying it everywhere that no corrupt person would go scot-free. Whoever is involved and whatever his status is, he must answer for such wrongs done. We have to keep proclaiming that everywhere. Also, while inaugurating the Iganmode- Ilo- Awela road in Ota, the vice president assured Nigerians that the Buhari administration would commence implementation of its campaign promises immediately the 2016 budget is passed into law. He disclosed that the Federal Government had provided for the unemployed youths, artisans, market men and women in the budget, noting that employment and job creation for the youths remained the cornerstone of the Buhari administration.
