Problem with Nigeria is finding upright men in authority – Osinbajo

The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, says that the problem with Nigeria is finding upright men in positions of authority.

Mr Osibanjo, a pastor, said this on Friday in Enugu during a book presentation by former governor of Enugu State, Mr Sullivan Chime.

The vice president said the widely held belief that the problem with the country was ethnic and tribal based was wrong and misplaced.

He said those who wanted to privatise the resources of the country and build human capital were the major cause of friction in the country.

He said such leaders instigated the division of the country along ethnic and tribal lines in order to sustain their empire.

“The problem of our country is finding forthright men in positions of authority,” he said.

Mr Osibanjo described Mr Chime as a man with strong values who made the desired change in the state during his time as governor.

He called on political office holders to discharge their responsibilities with good conscience and responsibility.

Mr Osibanjo said the country would be a better place if politicians think of what the future would hold for their people rather than how to win their next election.

“At the end of the day, integrity pays and I congratulate Chime for the successes he recorded during his time as governor,” Mr Osibanjo said.
