Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu has said that if corruption must be nipped in the bud, it has become imperative for the abolition of security votes presently being enjoyed by State governors and the executive, just as he called for the need to peg the minimum wage at N50,000.

Ekweremadu decried a situation where the minimum wage was put at N18,000, while some State governors and executives could pocket as much as N2 billion under the cover of Security Vote, also called for the urgent decentralization of the war against corruption if it must be worn and decisively too.
