A lawmaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Ishola Akeem Shokunle from Oshodi/Isolo Constituency 1 has come hard on corrupt public office holders, insisting that any public officer that is guilty of corruption should be executed.
Speaking in a recent interview, Shokunle said, “I support total or absolute punishment for corrupt public office holders, it is Sharia Law. If it is the best position that people canvass, we should go for it, corrupt public officers should be killed. And if that will put an end to corruption in our society so be it”.
The lawmaker however, said that he wouldn’t want to score President Muhammadu Buhari low so far because of the population of the country, adding that the president is only trying to play his own role, and that others would play their roles.
He said, “Whatever Buhari says in Abuja, he cannot come to Lagos to monitor it. If we determine that we want change, it could be from the people to the government, it is not from the government alone.
“If the government talks about change and the people refuse, there is nothing the government can do. Electricity has improved since Buhari took over whereas he has not done anything yet.”
