GOS stated in an interview recently that we may have our reservations as a country regarding whether we are where we ought to be, but that all in all, we are still together as a nation.

“There was a prophecy that Nigeria would cease to exist as a nation by 2015, but we are still together as a nation.

“The only thing is that does our level of development commensurate with our years of existence, we may not have a positive response in that regard. But we have a new government in place and there is a lot of hope that everything would get better,” he said.

On the anti-corruption stance of the current government, the chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that persecution should not be used to describe what President Muhammadu Buhari is currently doing, but that this is democracy, and that it is about the rule of law.

He said: “It is not about persecution, you have to bring them to book. Even if you want to accept plea bargaining, you still have to prosecute them. PMB said this at the UN meeting and he has been saying it even before he was elected that the was going to fight corruption.”

GOS added that the war on corruption could be won if we are determined and if the country has purposeful and visionary leaders.

He explained that it is about commitment and determination and that once a leader does not tolerate corruption, everybody would know him/her for it.

“We want deterrents and once they know that you won’t take such things, they would all fall in line,” he said.
