NYU Africa House discussion ... Rooting out Corruption in Nigeria with Mr. Ekpo Unaowo Nta in 2012
Peter Burgess COMMENTARY
I have worked to address the problem of corruption most of my adult life ever since I got over my youthful naivety. It is very difficult to address because corruption is often a short cut to wealth, and almost everyone on the planet is eager to acquire wealth ... especially easy wealth.
There are many organizations and individuals who are working to address the corruption problem ... but over the past fifty plus years, the problem has become worse rather than better.
Nigeria had its fair share of corrupt and powerful people ... while also having some courageous people who worked against corruption.
