Social critic urges government to embark on moral reorientation




A renowned social critic and Secretary General of Afenifere, the Pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Bashorun Seinde Arogbofa has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to complete his anti-corruption crusade with moral reorientation rather than limiting it to those who steal money.

Arogbofa said this at the weekend during his elevation into the Ude Ikanmu Council of Elders’ Investiture, Fund Raising and Conferment of Ikanmu Award of Excellence in Oka, Akoko South West LGA of Ondo State.

According to him, “The issue of corruption, he alone can’t fight it. It is a battle for all of us. And corruption too, it becomes something that is difficult to define: who is corrupt, who is not corrupt?”

He mentioned further that the corruption, by popular definition, borders on people who steal money and embezzle government fund for personal use at the expense of the people and detriment of the nation.

“But he should go in for a kind of moral rearmament where he should not only talk of people who steal money; he must appeal to the conscience. We should start from there, from moral school, begin from home; tell our parents: things that are good and things that are bad”, he said

However, he lauded President Buhari for the prevalent peace and relative progress made by his administration, urging Nigerians to exercise patience as the federal government continues to find solution to the myriads of problems confronting the nation
