OsaThese 4,000 ghost pensioners will remain ghostly. Their identity will never be known, and no legal action will be instituted. This is why Nigerian will forever be corrupt. When you are found to be corrupt, you corrupt others to set yourself free from corruption. This is the legacy of our legal system and political makeup. If Nigerians put corrupt officials on the pediscle, and call them philantropist, and award them title of chiefs, why would't every body strive to attain that fame?
