Ogun state governor calls for life imprisonment for corrupt public officials

Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has
advocated life imprisonment for public officials
found guilty of corruption. Governor Amosun made
the call yesterday when he addressed members of
Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union
Congress (TUC), at Arcade Ground, Oke-mosan,
Abeokuta, during the union's campaign for good
governance held simultaneously in all 36 States of the
federation and Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

According to Governor Amosun, if he had his way, he
would suggest capital punishment for both corrupt
political office holders and government workers but
since it was not in line with world best practice, life
sentence and stigmatization should be the best for

"You cannot be corrupt under anyone who is not
corrupt. I will say that whoever is found wanting
should be jailed for life irrespective of their
personality and they should be stigmatized, it
takes two to tangle, this anti-corruption crusade
is not only about political office holders,
government workers too should detest
corruption. If we all come together to kill
corruption, we would be better for it," he stated.
