Speaking on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Wednesday, Omogunwa lamented that corruption was pervasive in the country. He argued that it should be “legalised”.
He said there was corruption in the judiciary, and even within the anti-corruption agencies.
He said if corruption was legalised, Nigerians who stole public funds would use them in building factories and industries in the country, instead of having them stashed away abroad.
Omogunwa said this while making his contributing to the debate on the 2017 budget.
He added that the performance of the 2016 budget should be examined first before that of 2017 is determined.
