Former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has said that Nigerians do not need the latest Transparency International (TI) report to know that corruption has worsened.

Obi was reacting to a statement by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Spokesman, Garba Shehu, that TI’s report was not an accurate portrayal of the facts on ground.

He had maintained that Buhari deserves credit for diminishing corruption in the public service and dared the watchdog to “come clean and desist from further rehashing of old tales.”

But speaking to Arise News, Obi urged the Buhari administration to listen when told the truth even if it does not favor them.

He said, “Is corruption getting worse in Nigeria? Yes, we don’t need Transparency International to tell us that.

“We see it every day; we witness it every day; it is getting worse and we know it is getting worse.

“We have to respect and learn to listen when people are telling us the truth. It is not only when it favours us. In fact, one of the leadership tools is for you to listen and learn whenever you are criticized genuinely.”
