Yellow card to corruption

When one takes a look at the “skeletons” paraded by the military as herdsmen contending with the federal might, then one begins to wonder, “What is the matter with all the procrastination? The racketeers and musketeers in the National Assembly will have a “free for all.”
Those eyeing to share the juicy positions will be dancing. The self-appointed “messiahs” will be angling to foist spent forces on us. A section of the old brigade will lead incompetent politicians to come back to do more havoc on what is left in the treasury.
The “traders”, trading in votes to politicians in return for the passing of laws which permit the “raiding” of the public treasury will laugh all the way to the bank with a huge haul. We are inadvertently preparing the ground for the obscenely rich politicians to continue to use their wealth to terrorise and oppress the poor masses. Have you ever wondered why it is ex-customs, military, contractors and name it who win elections in Nigeria, hitherto permitting mediocrity to reign supreme?
Why do we allow lawmakers to collect salaries that are not in proportion to the value of the service rendered? The day of reckoning beckons, when the people will demand to look over the records of individuals, both great and small and demand an accounting for the accumulation of their riches. This way, the predatory desires and obsessions of public office holders for primitive acquisition of wealth will be checked. John R. Jimoh, No 1, Isale Ijagba Street, Sagamu, Ogun state
