    This is first class corruption charges perpetrated by leaders and it is called political corruption which leads to bureaucratic corruption. To solve the problem of corruption in Nigeria, the first class level of corruption has to be totally eliminated by de presidency.

    A sad moment for us Nigerians that our country is now the poverty capital of the world.A devastating situation of this magnitude is supposed to put the entire nation into a shock and a state of mourning, but unfortunately caught little or no attention from our leadership or the citizenry who bear the brunt. Listed among the causes of poverty in Nigeria are low economic growth, crime and violence, weak governance, Ill health and disease, and debt burden. Permit me to add 1. Our indifference and 2. Our attitude.

    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
