PROMISE: We Will Jail More Corrupt Persons – Osinbajo
Traffic was at standstill as thousands of residents, market persons and the Arewa Community, trooped out to receive Vice President Yemi Osinbajo during his Sunday visit to Lagos.
The APC presidential running mate was at Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State, in continuation of his house-to-house campaign.
The biggest message he took to the people was that grand corruption, which he claimed plagued the 16 years administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) contributed to the lack of infrastructure for Nigerians.
“The difference between us and the PDP is that we don’t steal government resources. We use it for the people. We earn less and we spend more on the welfare of people than the previous government.
“Everybody knows Buhari is an honest man.
“He will not steal public fund. We shall continue to fight corruption so that we can have enough money to provide infrastructure. We have to build on the foundation we have laid.
“The corrupt people will be jailed. That is why the corrupt elements in the opposition are desperate to regain power. We can’t leave government for the thieves.
“You should vote for APC because it is the only party that can do the job. We should not allow PDP to return to power,” he said.
Osinbajo also said that the Buhari-led APC government would focus on jobs for youths, power and providing enough resources to financially empower petty traders and business owners.
The Lagos-Kano Rail, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and the Second Niger Bridge are among the projects he promised that the present administration planned to complete.
“The next level will be much better than today.
"More power will be available to the people and there will be more infrastructure. Too much corruption have retarded our progress.
"That is why Buhari is fighting corruption. If there is no corruption, there will be money to carry out the developmental projects.
