Sanusi stated that these factors would continue to hinder Nigeria’s development and affect its progress.

He said, “Morally and religiously speaking, corruption is a problem.

“Part of the problem we have is incompetence and that is why I keep saying we must pay attention to merit. There must be a merit test; a competence test.
