Let’s legalise corruption in Nigeria – Senator pleads
Nigerian senator has asked the country’s senate to legalise corruption. Senator Yele Omogunwa (APC-Ondo South) spoke during plenary on Wednesday while contributing to the upper chamber’s debate on the 2017 budget.
Noting that pass federal budgets have had little or no impacts on the Nigerian people because of pervasive corruption, the senator stated that legalising and liberalising it would be better.
He said there was corruption in the judiciary, and even within the anti-corruption agencies. He said if corruption was legalised, Nigerians who stole public funds would use them in building factories and industries in the country, instead of having them stashed away abroad.
