Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has asked Nigerians to focus more on the expenditure of state governments rather than the Federal Government.
Osinbajo made the call on Wednesday while speaking at a civic innovation hub in Abuja. He criticised the low internal revenue generated from states, noting that state governors should be held responsible in the area of healthcare funding.
The Vice President maintained that Nigeria’s biggest challenge remains corruption and integrity.
He said, “If 70 percent of Nigeria’s resources went into the right channels, the nation wouldn’t be in its current situation.”
Osinbajo further took a swipe at politicians who go into office simply to loot the public treasury instead of fulfilling the promises made to the people ab initio.
