    GOVERNOR Rochas Okorocha of Imo says it’s impossible for political office holders or State governors not to steal from the public treasury because their salaries are meager.
    Okorocha belongs to the governing All Progressives Congress (APC)—a political party that often parrots stamping out corruption in public office, as a cardinal objective.

    The APC is also led by President Muhammadu Buhari, a former military general who has vowed to kill corruption before it kills Nigeria.

    However, in an interview with ChannelsTV, Okorocha appeared to suggest that keeping politically exposed persons from dipping their hands in the public till, will amount to an exercise in futility.

    Okorocha also said everyone in Nigeria is corrupt to a certain degree.

    'All men steal'
    “There’s no man on earth in Nigeria, from A-Z who will say he lives with the money you pay him monthly. The salaries of governors are N750,000 a month.

    "So, if you don’t have a second office or something else to do, you must steal. Any political office holder who doesn’t have a second office, must steal”,
    Okorocha said. (PulseNg)
