We Will Jail More Corrupt People, Osinbajo Says As He Brings Campaign To Lagos Again,
Mr Osinbajo said this on Sunday during his house-to-house campaign in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State.
Mr Osinbajo, the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was in the area to canvass for votes, also visited various markets and houses in the area.
Speaking to people in Ifako-Ijaiye, Mr Osinbajo said grand corruption, which plagued the 16 years administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) contributed to the lack of infrastructure for Nigerians.
Mr Osinbajo said the Buhari-led APC government would focus on jobs for youths, power and providing enough resources to financially empower petty traders and business owners.
“The difference between us and the PDP is that we don’t steal government resources. We use it for the people. We earn less and we spend more on the welfare of people than the previous government.
“Everybody knows Buhari is an honest man. He will not steal public fund. We shall continue to fight corruption so that we can have enough money to provide infrastructure. We have to build on the foundation we have laid.
“The corrupt people will be jailed. That is why the corrupt elements in the opposition are desperate to regain power. We can’t leave government for the thieves.
“You should vote for APC because it is the only party that can do the job. We should not allow PDP to return to power,” he said.
