The British High Commissioner in Nigeria, Catriona Laing, has said Nigeria’s major problem is corruption.
She said the country is blessed with the human and material resources needed for its desired development but was being tied down by pervasive corrupt practices.
Laing spoke when she visited the country home of former House of Representatives member, Prince Ned Nwoko, at his country home in Idumuje-Ugboko, Aniocha-North local government area of Delta State.
The High Commissioner said Nigeria has sufficient resources that should be harnessed for its future advancement in different areas of endeavours.
She added: “The tragedy of Nigeria is corruption; otherwise, the country is enormously blessed with human and material resources for the needed development”.
