Osita Chidoka Blasts Tinubu Over Remarks on Bribery In Nigeria

Bola Tinubu’s comments on bribe-seeking government officials have drawn criticism from former aviation minister Osita Chidoka, who claims that Tinubu should be promoting Nigeria rather than harming its reputation.

During an event in Qatar, Tinubu emphasised that Nigeria is working to remove barriers to investment and urged investors to denounce any Nigerian authorities who are asking for bribes.

In a Sunday interview with Politics Today on Channels TV, Osita called Tinubu’s remarks disappointing.

“I blame the inability of people like the Minister of Information and Foreign Affairs for the theme of the government.
