WARRI — President of Delta State Muslim Council, Alhaji Mumakai Unagha, has called on Nigerians to stop celebrating corrupt and bad leadership, saying such action had promoted corruption in the country.

The Muslim leader, Tuesday in Warri, Delta State, while addressing Muslim leaders in the state, who came to felicitate with him on his election into the executive of Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, said corruption and bad leadership have become endemic in Nigeria.

Unagha charged both traditional rulers and religious leaders to speak out and not remain silent.

According to him, religious and traditional rulers should not remain aloof, watching all sectors of the economy decay before intervention as they have divine roles to play.

He reminded the visiting Muslims that they were the mirrors other people looked at, pointing out that they should be modest as ambassadors of Islam.

The former chairman of the Delta State Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board, called for the restructuring of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and Independent Corruption Practices Commission, ICPC, to meet the aspirations of Nigerians.
