The chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Ekpo Nta on Tuesday said that many Nigerians do not see anything in stealing public funds.
According to PUNCH, Nta made the statement when some students of Government Secondary School, Kubwa, Abuja, visited the headquarters of the anti-graft agency.
“You see one Nigerian stealing billions of naira and dollars that could have been used for education and the construction of bridges and the irony of it is that many Nigerians do not see anything bad in it. They justify it.
At times, they say it is one-sided; why are you not touching this person? But we ask this question: ‘We have so many armed robbers and kidnappers out there. Have we arrested all the robbers at the same time?’ It is only when one is caught that he is arrested and that is what is happening in this situation,” he said.
