Why Is Honesty Mocked In Nigeria?

By: Gideon |Time : August 26, 2018, 01:46:54 AM
In a country where its citizens are decrying the spate of corruption in its government , it is hypocritical if the citizens themselves are no better.
Considering the bad name given to Nigerians , two citizens who have proven that Nigerians are not all bad showed their honesty by returning a bag of money to its owner.
The airport security guard Achi Daniel , and his supervisor, Francis Emepueaku returned the valuables and declined a reward from the owner and have been mocked by people for being “stupid”. Although they are not affected by the mockery since this is not the first time they have returned valuables to their owners.
They have been commended for their honesty by President Muhammadu Buhari and awarded a scholarship worth N 250 ,000 by their security company.
Why are they being mocked for their honesty?
Does it mean that Nigerians are hypocritical about changing the country for the better?

Morality has been thrown to the dogs and the country is tagged a very religious one filled with lots of churches and mosques... I think most nigerians are hypocrites and they should not be saying to the government "end corruption" when they themselves are corrupt and dishonest.

This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
Often, one starts to find himself in the midst of the whole thing and feeling like an Island.
One needs to hold fast to one's beliefs though.
There are still honest Nigerians but they are getting fewer and fewer...  :(

Yes...

What's worse, many a man thinks that the guy next door must do the needful to make the environment better while he goes on getting the whole place dirty.

You steal sweets yet you are the loudest when ranting about corrupt politicians, I hate to break it to you but you wouldn't fare better than them considering the fact that sweet is all you can steal now and you ain't doing a bad job of it. When money stares at you in these glass houses, will you really be able to resist?

Hypocrisy will continue to raise its ugly head in Nigeria until every Nigerian or majority of Nigerians take a look in the mirror and start making the changes they want from the "man" in the mirror.
