|Why Nigerian Politicians Lie by Orikinla(m): 11:54am On Dec 01, 2014|
This is a must read article why politicians lie and Nigerian politicians are not different.
The author is a seasoned journalist who is an insider in Nigerian political leadership.
Why Politicians So often Lie
In most cases In Nigeria, the impunity of public officers is not challenged. Even when the media and civil society groups have flashed brazen cases of impunity, there is no consequence management in the end.
There have also been instances where issues of lying, impunity and even fraud, have been politicized, with some sections of the country rising up in support of kinsmen, who should be prosecuted.
And of course, severely impoverished people have resigned themselves to fate, worrying more about how they can feed than what politician do or fail to do in plush government houses. Their situation is so bad that crump dropped for them come as divine intervention.
The constellation of these factors gives political leaders the license to lie. Were they held accountable for every word, for every promise made, they would be more careful with their words and actions.
