Politicians, corruption, cultism are Nigeria’s devt woes — Orugbo

Suspected drug peddler, one other, killed in renewed cult war in Bayelsa

An industrialist and the executive chairman of O-Secul Group of Companies, Mike Orugbo, has said unless corruption was reduced to the barest minimum in the country, Nigeria would never experience progress.

Orugbo who spoke to newsmen at his country home  in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State, noted that corruption which was the nation’s greatest problem, had eaten too deep into the fabric of the country.

Orugbo, who clocked 70 years last Saturday said he felt sorry for himself as a Nigerian because despite the fact that Nigeria was blessed with so much natural and human resources, she has continued to wallow in abject poverty.

“To make Nigeria’s economy one of the most vibrant  in the world, the Federal Government must make concerted efforts in fighting secret societies in the country. Most politicians are into one secret cult or the other, thereby diverting their allegiance  from the country to their secret societies.”

Orugbo, a leading EPIC and Human Capital Development Professional with over 28 years experience in engineering services in the oil and gas industry, lamented that the Warri refinery was not working even after several billions of naira had been spent on it in the name of turnaround maintenance.
