President Goodluck Jonathan arrived in Namibia Thursday, March 20, 2014 for a state visit and to commemorate that country’s 24th independence anniversary.
Asides holding a bilateral meeting at the Windhoek state house with President Pohamba of Namibia, President Jonathan also met with members of the Nigerian community in Namibia.
He told the Nigerians in Windhoek that corruption was everywhere but it is over-celebrated in the country to the extent that the nation and its people are stigmatized. He however made it clear that his administration would not condone the menace, but warned that the use of the proverbial big stick was not the solution to the problem.
The Nigerian High Commissioner to Namibia, Dr Biodun Olorunfemi, said that about 2,000 of them are resident in that country and have been good ambassadors for Nigeria.
According to him, no single Nigerian is in Namibian prisons, a far cry from what obtains in other countries around the world.
