Public office too attractive to discourage desperation – Islamic cleric


Image result for lecturer at the University of Lagos, Dr. Tajudeen YusufIt has been observed that public office is too attractive to discourage desperation, bad governance and corruption in Nigeria and until the country makes it less attractive, things may remain the same.

A Muslim cleric and a lecturer at the University of Lagos, Dr. Tajudeen Yusuf made this known while speaking on Islamic antidotes to bad governance, political corruption and tribalism at a programme organised by the Muslim Congress in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

He noted that until the wide gap between the electorate and the elected is bridged, the three major factors responsible for the problems confronting of the country will remain.

In their remarks, the leader of the Muslim Congress in the state and the Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly commended the leadership in the country for standing firm in protecting the unity of Nigeria and appealed to citizens to shun hate speeches and things that can cause disunity in the land.
