Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has said that Buhari’s entire APC government is under threat of corruption.


He said the Federal Government would employ a new strategy to fight the dangerous dimension that corruption appears to be assuming in the country. Osinbajo made the declaration, in an address delivered at the 7th Founders Day and 4th convocation Ceremony of Afe Babalola University of Ado Ekiti(ABUAD) on Friday.

According to him, higher institutions, such as ABUAD are great places to be used, in a national re-orientation programme being contemplated to fight the menace. He said none of the arms of government is immune from the scourge of corruption. He however said the Buhari government is ready to combat it, right from the school level.

“All institutions of government are under the threat of corruption “You will please recall that President Muhammadu Buhari, had himself warned on several occassions that if we don’t fight corruption, corruption will fight us ‘“We are thinking of using national re-orientation to fight corruption and other societal menace, and to my mind, Afe Babalola University appears as one of the great places to start with,”he said.

The Vice President thanked Aare Babalola and others who helped in intervening in the funding and management of education in the country.

He said the nation would forever remain grateful to them. Host governor, Mr Ayo Fayose described the Afe Babalola University as a miracle. He said Babalola, apart from using the institution to impart knowledge and offer employment to the jobless, has stood out as the largest employer of labour as well as highest tax payer in Ekiti state.

Founder of the university, Aare Babalola said he established the institution to set new standards in education and help return its lost glory.

The founder announced a donation of N90m to outstanding students that excelled in their various courses of studies, with each student receiving between N1m and N200,000.

  5. Oga VP why do they always send the dumbest of errands and common sense does not tell you anything? You are a dissapointment. If the school is clean and presidency, Judiciary and Executives are corrupt what impact will students integrety make? If the head is not good no way the other body members will be good. Attitude and action cannot be changed by other body parts. It's the head/mind that does that.
