The comedian,Francis Agoda, popularly known as I Go Dye, at an award tagged “Making a Difference Against Corruption Today”, said the level of corruption seen by youths and suffering of pensioners are reasons most don’t go to public office or service.
He said “I want to once again remind us that the issue of corruption witnessed against pensioners is the highest form of ill-treatment against humanity; denying them their benefits is unimaginable in a society like ours that has no social welfare package for elderly people.
“We all should speak out now for their comfort, because this is part of the reasons young people hate public service, and when they get employment, they see it as a means to steal public funds in order to preserve them against foreseeable situations facing pensioners across the nation.
“May God bless Nigeria and keep all the pensioners alive, to eat the fruits of their labour”.
Recall that I Go Dye recently confronted former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar for using the Nigerian youth as a motive to drive his campaign for the presidential seat ahead of the 2019 elections.
