of course!!! "Corruption is a crime against humanity and poisonous
cankerworm that drains and sabotages the wealth of a succeeding nation".
There are innumerable economic gains that can accrue from
President Muhammadu Buhari's anti-corruption battle which has wreaked
havoc on the nation's international image. It is the way man visualizes and
understand a problem that determines how best he get appropriate solution to
the problem. President Buhari's inspired motive and procedures towards
the drastic eradication of corruption in Nigeria is commendable but if he
saddles too much on the same platform 'fighting corruption' alone without
tackling other important issues, he may only be known as a corruption fighter
but not as a corruption conquerer.
Substantially, the act of arresting and jailing every political
and non-political elite that derives joy in looting and embezzling the common
wealth that is, national cake is a very impressive step but the
procedures are not appropriately taken.
Sincerely speaking, this is the high time that Nigeria's socio-
political and religious leaders must focus more on the causes of corruption not
to keep chasing the people that fine and wine with corruption alone. The
political leaders that derives joy in embezzling nation's wealth are
nothing but 'ambassadors of poverty'. They should not be exposed alone but must
also face thorough prosecution.
A nation that is a free egalitarian society with well tolerable
masses that are blessed with distinctive economic development,outstanding
profitable jobs, sound education and stable democracy system of government will
never be deteriorated by corruption.
Truthfully, Nigeria does not rawly have all the qualitative
attributes that makes corruption reduces in the society.
Therefore, justifiable and progressive procedures that can
neutralize the high level of corruption in Nigeria are illustrated
Firstly, the genesis of corruption and other unlawful acts does
not begin within the political sector. Corruption begin within the home where
some parents no longer serve as good mirrors for their children. Some parents
don't find it shameful to purchase examination questions for their wards or buy
result. Some mothers even encourage their daughters to dress indecently. One
truth is that, the upbringing of a child and religious belief that a child
imbibed determines how corrupt or morally oriented a child becomes in the
nearest future. Nigeria's religious leaders, socio-political leaders, parents
at homes and teachers in the schools should rebuild the mindset of themselves,
their children and fellow citizenry in an appropriate manner that will reduce
immorality within the society. They should cultivate the spirit of decency,
perseverance, contentment, honesty, hardworking and tolerance within themselves
at all times.
Secondly, the judiciary arms of government must be more effective
and efficient in their prosecuting activities. They should not prolong the
judiciary processes of prosecution because if not properly handled, it can give
room for manipulation. Judgement should be done accurately and speedly.
Therefore, the law enforcement agency must not only expose the looters, they
must succeed in curbing corruption by making it mandatory to prosecute and jail
any looter that is found guilty. Furthermore, the EFCC agency must
explore multilateral technical co-operation on corruption to develop mechanism
that will help the masses to develop good heart that discourage outright
stealing of public funds. The law enforcement agency must rebuild the
strategies of arresting their looters. They should gather enough solid facts
and figures before charging accused person to law court.
Thirdly, Nigeria's masses and the leaders must share equal
fundamental rights and obligations regardless of the ethnic groups, religion
and tribes.we must all abide with the constitution of the country at all times.
National cakes and public funds must not be injudiciously utilize by anybody.
We should all understand that a corrupt life is one devoid of God's blessings.
A corrupt society experiences the consequences of corruption. All the problems
our country is facing today are as a result of our deep romance with all forms
of corruption at all levels. If our leaders in all sphere of life bid farewell
to financial sleaze and the followers do the same, our country will surely
progress. At the same time, if we all resolve to embrace moral uprightness in
all our dealings, it is clear that God Almighty will shower His forgiveness and
mercy upon us once again, then, we will become the glorious country we ever
dream to become . God bless Nigeria!
