become great through corruption, adding that corruption always fought back when
being battled.

tried for corruption is because he is Yoruba, he is from the North, and he is
from South South.

He said the president had committed the country to the
pathway of integrity and that there was need for each person to stand up for

his land was ostracized and used as an example.
“There is no family in Yoruba land that allows thieves. If
you are a thief, we will expose you. We should support the effort of the
administration to fight corruption,” he said.
