Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has revealed that the reason behind embezzlement in the civil service is caused by the uncertainty in the welfare after retirement from service.

As reported by the Daily Trust newspaper, the event also saw the commissioning of the Day-Care Centre in celebration of the 73rd birthday anniversary of Onwuzurumba.

While speaking on the high rate of corruption in the civil service, the former President disclosed a situation where civil servants lack proper welfare and are not allowed to do business because of the civil service rules; such circumstance tends to encourage embezzlement.
