Election conductors or bribe takers? INEC suspends 205 officers for accepting bribes

“Based on their level of involvement, 205 serving INEC staff will be immediately placed on interdiction, which entails suspension from duties and being placed on half salary, pending the final determination of the cases they have with the EFCC,” - INEC

  • These officials were found guilty of being induced by bribe to manipulate the 2015 presidential election in Nigeria.
  • N3bn (9.5 million dollars, 8.9 million euros) - the amount they colleccted.
Our take on the matter
  • Scapegoat strategy works like magic. We hope other still-corrupt INEC officers are reading and listening.
  • The should have been sacked not suspended. To have time enjoy their bribe money.
