Prof Uno Igim of the Department of Public Administration, University of Calabar, has said the African culture puts much pressure on political leaders to steal and become corrupt because they want to please their people.

Igim said Africans demand so much from their leaders once in position because they want them to satisfy all their selfish needs at once, even if it meant dipping their hands into public funds.

He said: “Our culture as Africans mounts so much pressure on our leaders to become thieves and steal as well as become corrupt once they take up leadership positions because we want them to satisfy all our needs at once. There is a lot of demand on public office holders by the traditional and religious leaders to meet up with so many demands and when they to look  bad or are perceived in a negative light, they steal.”
