For Nigeria to be great, children and youths must shun corrupt practices, and instead work hard and be honest citizens so that they too can make Nigeria great, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN.
Prof. Osinbajo said this during an event to mark the 2018 International Book and Copyright day on Monday, April 23, when he visited LEA Government Primary School, Life Camp, Abuja, where he read excerpts from a short biography of Nigeria’s first President, the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe to the pupils.
At the event, Prof. Osinbajo advised the pupils the pupils to shun corrupt practices, and instead work hard and be honest citizens.
He said, “Corruption is stealing the money that belongs to all of us; that belong to young children and adults. This is the money that was supposed to use to build roads, to build school, to build hospital, to build airports and if some people steal that money, we should arrest them and put on trial, send them to jail so that everybody else will learn a lesson.
“Nigerian glory, first of all, is that we are very, very brilliant people, so we have brilliant doctors, brilliant engineers, pilots and also very brilliant sports men and entertainers, and so many very brilliant people. So one of the way that our country get one of her lost story how have you work, so if you make sure that you as a Nigerian child do your best in school and become something great then we will truly gain our lost story. So every one of us have a duty to make sure that we work hard, do the best we can, honesty and forthrightly and our country will be truly great.”
