Tonye Cole, the Rivers APC governorship candidate for the 2019 elections has stated that despite the global perception of Nigeria as a corrupt country that something could be done.
Cole spoke in Port Harcourt on Wednesday at a symposium with the theme “Corruption as an issue in Nigeria’s Development Crisis” organised by Rivers Unity House, a pro-APC group
He advocated the use of technology to reduce corruption, saying that technology can help to remove the bottlenecks in the system.
He also added that bottlenecks provide the platform for corruption.
He said, “Wherever there is a bottleneck, there is corruption”.
Cole said the second step to reducing corruption was to sit down with the business community and find ways to further increase the ease of doing business in the country.
Others who spoke at the event include the spokesman for Buhari campaign organization, Festus Keyamo and prof Eme Emekwe of the University of Port Harcourt.
