Tackling corruption necessary to solve Nigeria’s problems – Abike Dabiri
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, a presidential aide, has harped on the need to stamp out corruption as a way towards tackling the myriad of socio-economic and political problems Nigeria faces.
Mrs Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on diaspora and foreign affairs, said this on Monday while speaking at the public lecture organised by the Faculty of Education at the University of Ibadan.
“If we don’t tackle corruption, then we won’t solve our problems in Nigeria,” said Mrs Dabiri-Erewa.
She said the Muhammadu Buhari administration has invested ‘greatly in infrastructures, tackling corruption’.
He enjoined the public to support Mr Buhari. “it’s a shame for us for allowing just the president to tackle it alone”.
She further said that the Buhari-led administration has given room for the voices of youth to be heard stressing that some of the government’s entrepreneurial programmes such as N power scheme have helped to solve the rising plague of unemployment.
She, however, said the government is not just committed to creating jobs but to create an enabling environment for business to thrive.
The Dean, Prof. Ademokoya in his remarks highlighted the achievements of the faculty over the years saying that “No any other faculty of Education has contributed to Nigeria’s development than the faculty of Education, University of Ibadan”.
