Nigeria: the culture of corruption

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria, Development, Governance, Politics

Grandiose Parlor [1] thinks Naija Blog [2]simplified and over-dramatized the corruption phenomenon in Nigeria: For example, the blog states “If you go into public office and don’t come out rich, you are a failure. Your immediate and extended families will curse you…” Really? I didn’t know this. And as I peruse the post I couldn’t find any plausible solutions proposed to solve the problem beyond asking various religion bodies to speak against corruption. The Priest, Imam, Bishop etc, have never been effective ‘anti-corruption’ advocates because of how they operate under the constitution and in the society.”
