Yele Omogunwa, a senator from Ondo state has called for the legalization of corruption. What an abomination?! He decamped from PDP to APC. He is representing Ondo South senatorial district.
The senator reportedly said this on Wednesday, January 25 while lamenting the high rate of corruption in the country, according to The Sun.
Omogunwa reportedly said legalising corruption is a good way of cubing it since it has eaten deep into the fabrics of the nation. Wow, President Buhari might not be pleased when he gets back from his long holiday.
He argued that legalized corruption would help politicians and public holders to invest their stolen money in the country instead of stashing them away abroad.
The official twitter handle of the senate also confirmed Omogunwa’s suggestion, writing: “Senator Omogunwa notes that Budgets doesn’t have maximal impact due to corruption. He says corruption should be legalised/liberalised then.”
