September 27, 2022

It’s hard to imagine Nigerian politicians doing anything other than leeching off Nigeria’s treasury for as long as they can. 

We know Nigerian politicians want to stay in power forever, but if they had to work a 9-5 job like the rest of us, what would be their defining character traits — based on what we already know about them?
