The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo says the problem with Nigeria is not about resources or planning, but the poor management of resources in the past, bothering on grand corruption.
Prof. Osinbajo, stated this while responding to questions during a town-hall meeting in Germany.
“The biggest problem we have, not planning but grand corruption is the reason why we are not moving as fast as we should in our country.” Vice president said.
Prof Osinbajo said there is no country in the world that can survive if its resources are stolen the way Nigeria’s resources are stolen.
The Vice President explained that most of the issues raised by the Nigerians in Diaspora at the meeting dwell on lack of energy, infrastructure, quality and extensive health care services, education and security can be traced to the management of resources.
He urged Nigerian citizens to hold their leaders accountable for the nation’s wealth.
Prof Osinbajo said federal government was addressing the matter from several fronts such as the Federal Government employment of 500,000 graduates under the N-Power scheme, as well as the social investment programmes like MarketMoni and TraderMoni.
