Why Nigerians Love Money for Votes

Despite calls against corruption , despite complaints about bad governorship and leadership

People are still collecting cash for votes
"Come sharply to the Governors Office"

This is why words alone will not change a thing. Many of these people are illiterate in their own languages, in fact they can't cook and eat words... and so have no time for constitutions or reading about policies.

Many have no access to the internet, or simply no time or desire to use it.

So what can be done to prevent the same type of leaders being elected time and time again into power, only to eat the money for development and ignore the needs of the people.

Surely the people must now take responsibility.

too easily bought perhaps?
If Nigeria back in the day could easily see their own kin into slavery we should be accustomed to this love of things by now
Yet easily said right?. If you have no money and someone starts giving it away for free, who wouldn't take?. Your integrity won't fill your empty stomach..

However, leaders with true integrity will need to find a way to re-educate and feed at the same time. Re-educate and do, whether in power or not. Volunteers and NGOs providing training on building community civil society would be a good start

Colonial tactics are still working well across the continent. We learned them well...
too bad
