According to a Senate Committee, civil officials are more corrupt than politicians.


Following an investigation, the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions claimed that it had found that corruption is more pervasive in the public service than in other industries.

The chairman of the committee, Senator Ayo Akinyelure (PDP, Ondo), remarked during a two-day workshop on governance, accountability, ethics, and due process in public and private sector establishments in Nigeria on Wednesday, August 30, that civil workers are more corrupt than the political class.

Akinyelure asserted that the public service must be cleaned up of corruption before the Buhari administration can succeed in its fight against corruption.

Additionally, he claimed that because public employees work for longer periods of time than politicians, "corruption in the public sector continues."

Akinyelure declared

The masters of (governance) procedures are civil employees. They serve for 35 years, whereas lawmakers and other officials ask the public for votes to extend their terms every four years.

The current state of Nigerian society looks to be beset by a variety of issues, including fraud, corruption, broken promises, bankruptcies, insurgencies, and a high level of insecurity.
