The Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo has lamented the damages religion, tribalism and corruption had done to the peace and development of Nigeria.
He gave this assertion in a conference in Lagos titled; “Towards a Better Nigeria,’’ organised by Christian leaders.
In his address, he was not specific on his support for the restructuring but said that it was part of APC manifestoes in their electioneering campaigns..
“The APC manifesto in 2015 talked about devolution of powers and Nigeria may do more work to ensure that states are generating more income and people are paying more taxes.’’
He said Christian leaders have failed to chart a new agenda in ridding the nation of corruption and other vices.
“The key to development in Nigeria is the church. It is the church that will begin the process of unity by uniting itself first.
“What Nigeria needs is already written in the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
He said there was no religion or tribalism among the looters of our commonwealth but only using religion to divided Nigerians to enable them have their ways.
He went further that integrity, hard work and love is a panacea to building a new Nigeria.
Osinbajo said that to build a new Nigeria, “we need people of integrity, hard work and people with love for the country.
“It is this tribe that can configure the argument for change in Nigeria. The corrupt Nigerian elites are one tribe.
“In sharing their loot, they neither bring in ethnicity nor religion but only use such to create misunderstandings that will benefit themselves.
“The reason Nigeria is where it is today is because people do not really care. It is time people should stand up for what is right and join the fight against corruption.
“Corruption has become the rule in Nigeria and this must stop. It did not start with this administration and it is yet to stop.” © October 28, 2017
