[Abuja]–Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the Federal Government would continue to prioritize the war against corruption which is an existing element in the Nigerian polity.

He made this known on Tuesday while he received a delegation of the Nigerian Association of Law Teachers in Abuja.

According to Osinbajo, the anti-corruption war has so far been a demanding task but President Muhammadu Buhari has been ensuring that the war achieves desired result.

“If we are not able to sustain the trouble against corruption, we will end up in a very, very bad way as a nation

“We have seen it in so many different ways that at almost every state, corruption fights back and fights very fiercely

“We should be able to examine our priorities because for us corruption is not a moral issue, it is an existential issue.

To a large extent, it will determine whether we will survive as a corporate whole because of the way people feel that when I get into an office I will go after the resources of the state, and I will go after it in the most vicious and the most reckless manner that is possible”, he said.
