Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has recommended life imprisonment for corrupt politicians and government officials.
After this, he better not be found wanting, or the wolves will come for him
Governor Amosun stated this on Thursday while addressing members of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC), at Arcade Ground, Oke-mosan, Abeokuta.
The Labour unions were holding a nationwide campaign for good governance, which was held simultaneously in all 36 States of the federation and Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Amosun told the union members that if it was possible, he would suggest capital punishment for both corrupt political office holders and government employees.
He however, said that capital punishment was not favoured around the world, (except China), hence, life sentence and stigmatization should be the portion of these corrupt persons.
“You cannot be corrupt under anyone who is not corrupt. I will say that whoever is found wanting should be jailed for life irrespective of their personality and they should be stigmatized.
“It takes two to tangle, this anti-corruption crusade is not only about political office holders, government workers too should detest corruption. If we all come together to kill corruption, we would be better for it.”
