- a student thinks more about how to cheat in an exam instead of reading for the same exam
- a lawyer thinks about how to confuse the client so he/she will pay more even if it means sending the same client to jail instead of thinking of how to defend the client professionally and justly
- a builder thinks about using substandard materials even if it means the building will collapse later instead of thinking of how to build structures that will stand the test of time
- a doctor thinks about making sure you get to spend at least a night in the hospital so as to generate more money for himself and the hospital even for ordinary headache instead of giving you appropriate medication that will save you time and money plus the good health
Do you think that this war against corruption and poverty can be won in our lifetime considering the fact that many seem incapable of surviving without corruption and poverty has made it even more difficult for the average Nigerian to think straight and say no to corruption?
The system is being deliberately messed up so that the overwhelming majority of Nigerians will keep operating at these levels hopefully forever! Will you let this happen? Who benefits and who loses?
