Nigeria: alamieyeseigha

More on Bayelsa ex Governor Alamieyeseigha from Nigerian blogger Oluniyi David Ajao….”I must say here that Diepreye Alamieyeseigha is not the only kleptocrat in Nigeria, or in the world for that matter. It is common knowledge that many (if not most) African political leaders are only in power to steal from the state’s coffers. They have never achieved much in life, and only see power as an oppurtunity for self-enrichment. Can you blame them”?
