    Who would you rather listen to? God or men? I think Osibajo needs to do what is right irrespective of what anyone says.

    I have a question – why do lawyers and accountants have a monopoly and infringe on our economic freedom and right to earn a living in this country?

    It’s the government’s job to enforce laws not the elites. Corruption will never go away, the goal is to make sure there’s consequences to an extent. elites everywhere always have a voice. If that’s the case no one will be prosecuted and serve time. The eelites in wall street, everywhere probably did everything to stop Bernie madoff, Bill Cosby not to go to jail but someone had to be held responsible for crime they are accused of then proven guilty
