Jonathan Blames Ordinary Nigerians For Corruption

President Goodluck Jonathan has lamented that in spite of institutional reforms aimed at fighting all forms of corrupt practices, ordinary Nigerians are encouraging corrupt practices through their actions.

The President disclosed that both the public and private sectors were involved in corruption in Nigeria but he refused to give out the names of those involved “so that I won’t be attacked.”

Jonathan made the revelations while declaring open the 54th annual conference of Nigerian Economic Society in Abuja on Tuesday.

He argued that if Nigerians did not “reward corrupt practices” through their actions, those involved in them would have no need to continue. “I want a society where all of us will frown upon people who come up with what they are not supposed to have.

“A young man who just started a job and within six months or a year comes up with a car of N7m to N15m and you clap for him, then you are rewarding corruption.

“So for us as a nation to bring corruption down, it is not just blaming government or blaming the police, but all individuals must frown upon people who have what they are not supposed to have; who live in houses they are not supposed to live in; who drive cars they are not supposed to drive and who wear expensive suits they are not supposed to wear.

“And until Nigerians are able to do this, I don’t think we will get to where we want to go.”
