A former governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, yesterday said the whole system in Nigeria was corrupt.
He said the few ones that were not corrupt were those who did not have access to corruption and those who preferred death to being corrupt.
According to the elder statesman, who spoke in Kaduna, said Nigerians were only surviving like animals in the forest.
“In fact, the whole system is corrupt. Nobody knows who is not corrupt in Nigeria. The only two set of people that are not corrupt in Nigeria are those who have no access to corruption and those who, by their nature, will rather die than to be corrupt, but this constitutes less than point 00.1 percent of Nigerians.
“So, the corrupt people are either corrupt knowingly or unknowingly, intentionally or unintentionally or somehow. The only people that are not corrupt in Nigeria are very few because they have no access to corruption or by nature, they will not be corrupt because they are people who will prefer to die than to be corrupt in any way.
“These are negligible few in Nigeria and since the system is made up of corrupt people who always like to steal either knowingly or unknowingly, you expect all sorts of things to happen in Nigeria. We are only surviving like animals in the forest,” he said.
Musa urged Nigerians to desist from all forms of corruption.
