Yemi Osinbajo, Acting President has said that the idea that one ethnic group is more corrupt than another is false.
Osinbajo while at a seminar of the Institute of Security Studies on Wednesday also explained that a division of the ethnic groups in Nigeria is not the best move for the country.
Recently, the South -East movement Indigenous People of Biafra have been seeking to break free from Nigeria to form their own country as they claim they have been marginalised.
“It is a false narrative that nations formed the way ours was formed is bound to fail. Term mere geographic expression is not original to Nigeria,” he said.
“It is also a false narrative one group is more corrupt than the other. Not so. If you look at a corruption charge sheet, there is unity you find all ethnic and religious groups equally represented in corruption. There’s complete unity in the business of corruption.
“It is also a false narrative that we are better off when ethnic groups are on their own. While different groups have strength we are better united.
“It is also not true that those who make marginalisation charges are altruistic. Often what they are saying is I am marginalised-‘appoint me’.”
