Prof. Osinbajo stated this in Abuja while declaring open the anti-corruption conference tagged “collaborative approach to eradicating the evils of corruption in Nigeria.
The conference was Organised by the office of the vice president and the presidential advisory committee against corruption (PACAC).
Prof. Osinbajo said Nigeria’s 2030 gross domestic product (GDP) could be up to 534 billion dollars higher if it reduced corruption.
According to him, in spite of the highest oil revenues in Nigeria’s history, debt doubled and poverty figures rose as a result of corruption.
He added that the administration is not slightly deluded into thinking that it had won the battle against corruption as it is tackling grand corruption first.
