The former interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, on Thursday, said politicians with no other sources of livelihood may end up getting involved in corrupt acts in public office.

This has made households with limited access to fuel and energy resources at greater risk of food insecurity and owing to low electrification, face numerous protection risks.
