High rate of corruption bane of Nigeria development – Saudi Don


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
A Don with the University of Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh (Dr) Abd’Afeez Abd’Ganiy on Sunday identified high rate of corruption as bane of Nigeria development.
Dr Abd’Ganiy said this in Ibadan while delivering a lecture titled: “How Can I Become Good Muslim Through My Character?” organized by the Jama’atu Ta’awunil Muslimeen.
According to Dr Abd’Ganiy  the present high rate of corruption in the country has led to the under development of Nigeria, adding that despite the huge available human and natural resources in the country, Nigerians are still wallowing in abject poverty.
He maintained that corruption has eaten so deep into the fabrics of all sectors of the nation’s economy which in turn has resulted to under development of the country.
Lamenting that many Nigerians have resolved to corruptly enrich themselves because they lack the fear of God,he said Nigeria had enough resource that could go round to take care of its people, saying,”if there is fear of God in the minds of the people, there will not be any need to steal public fund and there will be enough for the majority of the people”.
Speaking further,he charged parents, house of worship and schools to rise up to the challenges of instilling right attitudes and fear of God on the people,saying,for a better society, there is the  need for the Muslims to understand the religion of Islam and be prepared to replicate such wherever they might found themselves.
Condemning those he tagged as enemies of Islam who are hell bent at destroying Islam and ensure that the worshipers did not have access to its understanding,he said both Boko Haram and ISIS terrorists were being sponsored by the world powers and that the duo are unIslamic.
Leader of Jama’atul Ta’awunil Muslimeen in Akinyele/ Ibadan North zone, Alhaji Ibraheem Hashim Bousari urged Nigerians to move closer to God and pray fervently for positive changes in the country considering the high rate of suffering in the land, saying, Nigeria had enough resources to cater for her citizens.
