Corruption Is So Endemic In This Gov't Yet People Who Steal Chickens Are Thrown Into Prison- Ortom

Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom has described the administration of the outgoing president, Muhammadu Buhari as one of the worst Nigerians have ever had in the history of the country.

Speaking during the commissioning of the headquarters of the Benue State Community Volunteer Guards in Makurdi as reported by Vanguard, the governor noted that before Buhari took over in 2015, Nigeria was flourishing.

He said if Nigerians compare the current exchange rates to what was obtainable during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan, they would realize how bad it has been under the outgoing government.

He said corruption is so endemic in the government to the extent that people who commit small crimes are thrown into prison whereas, those who steal public funds in government are walking free.

Samuel Ortom said "under the then president Goodluck Jonathan's administration, we saw how Nigeria flourished. We all knew what prices of foods and services were at that time. We also know what our exchange rates was at the time and what it is today. The fact is never in the history of Nigeria did we experience this kind of bad governance in the country. Corruption is so endemic in this government yet people who steal chickens are thrown into prison but, those in government who are busy stealing the wealth of the people are walking free."
