The President spoke from the heart after delivering his speech at an event hosted for members of the Senior Executive Course 44 (2022) of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Citing a personal experience involving an unnamed Governor, the President portrayed the sort of corrupt practices perpetrated by some Governors in dispensing resources meant for local councils’ administrations.

He said it beats anyone’s imagination how some Governors would collect money on behalf of council areas in their States only to remit half to the council chairman, who would further deplete the remittance in further pilfering of public resources.

He related the situation to a lack of integrity among many of those holding such offices.

Such actions, he said, are despicable and speak of the height of corruption in the country.
