Corrupt public officials should face capital punishment – APC Youths


Movement of Progressive Youth of Nigeria (MOPYON) has prescribed capital punishment for any public official found culpable of corrupt practice.

The group also called on the National Assembly to enact laws to that effect.

The National Coordinator of the group, Mr. Remigius Nwaonu, made the call in Abuja at the Progressives National Youth Leadership Colloquium and Awards organised by the group.

Describing corruption as a desperate disease that requires desperate attention, the group said legislations with capital punishment would grossly help in the fight against corruption, especially among public servants.

Speaking on the theme: “Sustainable the Buhari’s Leadership Style of Anti-corruption as a Political Culture in Nigeria: the Place of Progressive Youths in the New Nigeria,” the youth leader canvassed death penalty for corrupt practices.

“On the fight against corruption, we request the National Assembly to enact an Act to pronounce corruption a capital offence punishable by hanging to serve as a deterrent to those going for various public services,” he stressed.
