Corruption in our country

23 February 2015, 19:31

It is very clear that for Nigeria to become corruption free, we have to abide many things. The largest problem we always encounter is that the citizens of Nigeria have no respect to the rulers/leaders of various positions.

The first problem is that, when a leader makes a mistake, for the citizens(people close to him) to correct that bad thing, they tried to misunderstand and begin to insult that the government is not doing.

We have to know that one person cannot take care of everything, we all need to put our hands and work together to achieve our goals. The second issue is that, we Nigerians are so much selfish which also brings about corruption. Most example is the leaders that are in control of there citizens.

Most of them are elected in order to get the position, but why is it that when same people that elect you says that they don't need you anymore, won't you resign and leave it for someone else. You try to forced that you were the one to control them over and over even though they don't like it, which is so bad.

Even when they ended there tenure, they try to replace there place by someone who is a brother or cousin to them, which i think is also very bad. I think this two things are the big issues currently we need to know.
