Matthew Ashimolowo, the head of the Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), has said that corruption in Nigeria can only be curbed with an effective system.
Ashimolowo said that President Muhammadu Buhari needs to surround himself with persons who are willing to key into his vision of zero tolerance for corruption, Channels TV reports.
He said that although corruption cannot be entirely eradicated, with such persons around the president, the vision can be turned into a workable system that can slow and reduce the trend.
The cleric said: “If the president says he wants a government that kills corruption, then the people around him should now come up with the systems that make corruption difficult.
“We need those who will take the vision of the president and turn it to systems so that even if you wanted to do it, you were not allowed.”
He said that one of the major remedies is to deal with the disorder at the lower level through a system supported by all and sundry.
