Corruption Worse Under Civilian Than Military Regime – IBB

IBB Speaks On Agitations For Secession 

Former Military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (IBB) on Friday opined that corruption in Nigeria is worse under civilian leaders than under military rulers.

Gatekeepers News reports that IBB noted that during his regime as military head of state, he sacked a governor for misappropriating less than N313,000 and noted that reverse is the case under civilian administrations, as people who steal public funds walk freely on the streets.

“Well on that, you can’t compare it with the facts on the ground now. You can say it. From what I read, from analysis, I think we are saints when compared to what is happening under a democratic dispensation.

“I sacked a governor for misappropriating less than N313,000,” IBB said during an interview with Arise TV.

“Today, those who have stolen billions and are in court are now parading themselves on the streets. Who else is better in fighting corruption?”

Gatekeepers News reports that IBB blamed politicians for disunity in the country, adding that the they are not serious about nation-building.

He noted that there was a time in the country when people held positions in regions outside their ethnicity with any crisis.

“Till today, unfortunately, the political class are not really into this seriously and say how do we build a nation,” he said.
