The All Progressives Congress, APC, has hailed Nigerian workers and the Civil Society for standing up firmly against corruption, calling their open demonstration of support for the Federal Government’s battle against corruption a major boost to the anti-graft fight.
The party said Nigerian workers’ unambiguous stand against corruption was also a clear repudiation of all those who had attempted to politicise the battle either by insinuating selectivity or saying the government should face governance instead of dwelling on the fight against corruption.
Its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said the growing intolerance for corruption among Nigerians was also a clear example of what a nation could achieve under a committed, sincere, purposeful and focused leadership.
Mohammed said the delivery of good governance was seriously hampered by corruption, hence the need to fight the cankerworm of corruption that had eaten deep into the fabric of the Nigerian society.
He said corruption was the main reason why millions of unemployed youths could not get jobs, why hospitals lacked necessary equipment and medicines, why infrastructure deficit was worsening and why social services were almost non-existent.
