Reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s war against corruption, he told newsmen at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abuja: “We are looking at corruption in a global perspective as against just taking money. If you look at it generally, you will see that virtually every Nigerian is corrupt, virtually 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.”
