During the interview session, Adesina was asked how deep corruption in the presidency is. In his reply, he said
“No, you don’t need to single out the presidency. The question should be how deep is the corruption in Nigeria. There is corruption everywhere, everywhere in the country and don’t forget that the Vice President has said it before that there is corruption everywhere. Judiciary, Executive, Legislator, there is corruption everywhere, possibly in broadcasting. There is corruption everywhere in Nigeria”.
“It takes me back to school days when we were taught rhetorical questions. We were told that Rhetorical questions don’t need an answer, so I just see that as a rhetorical question. If we must get an answer, then we must get it from the SGF because he asked it”.
“It is a matter of procedure by government. If government feels this is the way we want to go about it and it is lawful, then there is nothing wrong with it. I believe there is nothing wrong with the government setting up a panel to investigate”.
