Former President Jonathan Explains Why Corruption Is Pervasive In Nigeria

Joseph Albert (Umunna TV)

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that corruption is pervasive in Nigeria because people don’t know what will happen tomorrow.

He stated this while delivering his address at the seventy-third birthday celebration, unveiling of Elderly Care Centre and a book presentation in honour of former State House Chaplain, Obioma Onwuzurumba, in Abuja.

Jonathan, who lamented lack of care for civil servants, whom he said were not allowed to own businesses, and still weren’t taken care of after their time of service, said having no welfare system that can manage people fuels corruption.
In his contributions on the day care centre, former Archbishop and Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Peter Akinola, noted that the value and practice of care for the aged was fading among the younger generation, and he called for support to make the elderly centre a reality.
