The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Thursday said that Nigeria is now more prosperous than it was two years ago.
He stated this at a book launch, ''‘Making Steady, Sustainable Progress for Nigeria’s Peace and Prosperity'' at the old banquet hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja where he was the special guest of honour. 
While speaking Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said ''President Buhari administration has changed the story of Nigeria for good in the last two years; he maintained that Nigeria is now more prosperous than it was two years ago.''

“The good that you have started, he told the President, do it more, the administration of your successor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, won gold medal in corruption.''

He said: “The prior government used the public treasury as a private hedge fund or a charity that limited its giving only to themselves.

“So much money grew feet and ran away faster than Usain Bolt ever could. That which could have been spent on national development was squandered in ways that would cause the devil to blush.
“One minister and her rogues’ gallery picked the pocket of this nation for billions of dollars. While poor at governance, these people could give a master thief lessons in the sleight of hand. In governance, they earned a red card but in corruption l, they won the gold medal.

“It was not that our institutions had become infected by corruption. Corruption has become institutionalized”
