Adedoja, Ex-Oyo SUBEB Boss, UI Don Advocate Moral Rejuvenation To Reduce Corruption
Nigeria, as a nation, needs to embark on moral rejuvenation to reduce the act of corruption.
The dean of the faculty of arts at the University of Ibadan, Professor Abdul Hafiz Oladosu, led others to make the call at a stakeholders’ summit organised by Political Awareness Group, PAG, an association of Muslim Professionals and Technocrats for Good Governance.
Oladosu who is a lecturer at the department of arabic and islamic studies, noted that morally upright ones with God consciousness would not embark on corrupt activities.
He admonished the political office holders to fulfill their electioneering in order to regain the confidence of the people noting that the current developments in the country have demoralised many Nigerians.
In a remark, former governor Rashidi Ladoja emphasized on the unity of Nigeria, warning against secession as being clamoured in some quarters.
Ladoja, represented by former secretary to the state government, Barrister Sharafadeen Alli decried the idea of tagging a particular tribe with crimes maintaining that every tribe has bad eggs and criminal elements.
The former governor posited that true federalism would solve series of challenges facing the country.
A former chairman of the Oyo State Universal Basic Education, SUBEB, who also chaired the occasion, Dr. Sulaiman Adediran, enjoined muslims to develop themselves politically and be advocates of good governance.
Earlier, PAG chairman, Barrister AbdWaheed Olowonjaye, noted that the organisation stands for good governance and was ready to support those who shared the group’s agenda.
He explained that resolutions at the summit would be transmitted to appropriate quarters and concerned authorities.
Olowonjaye condemned the call for secession in some quarters stressing that what should be paramount was the need to join hands with the Federal Government to find lasting solutions to various challenges bedeviling the country.
