Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has advised the government to be prepared for counter-attacks from corrupt Nigerians and their cohorts as it fights against the menace.
Speaking in Lagos, Professor Soyinka pointed out that it was the first time that the fight against corruption had been heightened and should not be treated lightly.
“It is going to be a hard one. It has already started.
“There is no question whatsoever that we are not where we were before this new administration took over, but we must all have to be very careful.
“Corruption fights back and the hardest fighters are those already within the cesspit of corruption.
“The fight is on two levels. One is directly against corruption and then you have to prepare for the counter-attack that is where we are at the moment,” Professor Soyinka said.
He expressed worry at how funds meant for the purchase of military equipment to fight Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast was diverted without consideration for the helpless victims of the insurgent attacks and the soldiers at the forefront of the battle.
“We haven’t had a situation where it is being alleged and increasingly proved that money supposed to be spent on defending ourselves, our nation and our neighbourhood has been shared.
“I have not heard such exposé within the military before and of cause because of that very reason, corruption has chosen to fight back. When people fight back, I like that, because when they fight back they energise you and you get ready for them,” Soyinka said.
