Nepotism is corruption — US react to Buhari’s war against corruption


The United States Embassy in Nigeria has pointed out that corruption is not limited to diversion of funds but includes a wide range of other infractions, among which is nepotism.

In a Facebook post it made on Friday, the US Embassy noted that instances where public funds were diverted to personal accounts and where a public officer unfairly gives jobs to relatives were tantamount to corruption.

Furthermore, instances of police officers demanding for a tip before granting passage to vehicles and where companies scheme to put their competitors out of business through corporate espionage and bribery were classified as corruption.

The US Embassy Facebook post reads: “What is Corruption? It exists everywhere…

“When public funds are diverted to personal accounts…

“When a public officer unfairly gives jobs to relatives…

“When companies scheme to put their competitors out of business through corporate espionage and bribery…

“When a police officer asks, “Wetin you bring,” demanding for a tip before letting vehicle drive by.
“Add to this list in the comments below and let’s explore what can be done.”
