APC chieftain advocates capital punishment for corrupt politicians

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Moshood Salvador, on Wednesday advocated capital punishment for corrupt practices in Nigeria.

He spoke in Abeokuta, while delivering a public lecture on “2023: Whither Nigeria?” organised by the Federated Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ogun State chapter.

He said while President Muhammadu  Buhari is determined to fight corruption, he cannot do it alone and charged the political class to shun corruption and embrace integrity.

Salvador noted that corrupt officials and technocrats took advantage of Buhari’s long medical trip to the United Kingdom (UK) and re-enacted themselves in the “business of corruption.”

He said: “As soon as Buhari got the mantle of power because of the no nonsense man he was known for, all government workers including the public was ready to go by way of integrity.

“All windows of corruption were getting closed. Special type of accounts was introduced for proper revenue collection. Immediately, Mr. President’s health deteriorated and was hospitalised for a long time, the technocrats perfected their strategies of embezzlement and corruption waged in, in a big way,” he said.
