If the government pays for district and village heads then he can sack them.

And that's why corruption will continue in Nigeria. When you can't fire civil/ public servants. Knowing this, they behave any how, go to work whenever and yet tell you to pay for a service they are being paid to do. It's just crazy. If Nigeria must grow, ministries must be privatised. You can't work any how in the bank or in an Alhaji me&u company and don't get query for irresponsibility

When you vividly look into El-Rufai's eyes you could see his mind playing TRICKS on HIM.
