Earlier on this year, Nigeria president Goodluck Jonathan once again did it by teaching the whole nation a new definition for corruption, in his effort to explain how ‘clean’ his party is, he redefined looting of the nation’s treasury by politicians as mere stealing and not corruption.
There was a big noise about this but as always, the noise fades away like many others. Since then, a few things happened: $9 million cash was seized in South Africa in an aircraft that belonged to a close friend of president Goodluck Jonathan and the president of Christian Association of Nigeria Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor – no case has been answered to date – this is Nigeria.
Also, the case that prompted our PhD president rsedefining stealing Vs. corruption was that of $20billion that just waka away unaccounted for – still no clear explanation for the whereabout.
Now as Nigerians, we know by now that miracle will not happen to clean our public offices, it is up to us to decide the best way to rid our public offices from these blood-sucking vultures.
Since our problem with corruption or stealing from ‘national cake’ is deep-rooted, maybe the best way is to be intolerant of any public theft be it petty or otherwise.
Here is how Czech dealt with one of theirs – imagine if we can manage to get our politicians to his level?
