    Nigerian Leaders are really not being sincere to civil servants in the ministries, departments and Agencies (MDAs) that actually do the work for the betterment of the Nation. It’s so shameful seing this for the Leaders that are fighting corruption. Please take a visit to Ministry of Environment and ask any Director about his/her salary, you will weep for such worker, then talk less of a “level 8 Officer” who is a Nigerian Worker that is not entitled to any incentive like estacode , DTA, wardrobe, medical and housing allowances etc, yet such worker goes to the same Markets for shopping. Do you think such Nigerian worker would be happy with the government hearing or reading this kind of article online? Please pass this round that this leadership attitude of let it well with me and only my constituency is not fair, and will never be good for the Nation’s growth. I humbly submit that the Presidency should please share the National cake across other Sectors Thank you
