President Goodluck Jonathan has urged Nigerians to stop celebrating corrupt people.

The President stated this on Sunday, March 22, during a Presidential Debate organised by the Nigeria Elections Debate Group (NEDG) Abuja.

“Nigerians should change their mentality and condemn people with ill-gotten wealth,” the President said.

“What we see is a situation where somebody gets wealth illegally and goes to his village and they give him a chieftaincy title,” he added.

“In the government circle, we used the IPPIS; no more use of raw cash; it cuts across all sectors and in that case you stop people from stealing public fund,” Jonathan said.

The President also stated that his strategy for fighting corruption is by prevention, strengthening of institutions and re-orientation of the people.
