Former Head of State, General YAKUBU GOWON is saying corruption has made governance in the country difficult.
GOWON who spoke at the Northern Nigeria Stakeholders’ Town Hall Engagement in Kaduna noted that corruption was responsible for the deterioration of the quality of infrastructure, healthcare delivery among others in the country.
This, GOWON noted, had robbed the government of the respect and loyalty of the citizens and eroded the authority of the state.
The former military ruler said, “Truth be told, the fight against corruption is a fight that we must overcome, we must win it and win it decisively.
Corruption has also caused deterioration in the quality of infrastructure, healthcare delivery and education among others.”
General GOWON also said the current economic situation facing the country is one of the most troubling economic crisis ever.
