Nigerians celebrate people with questionable wealth – Buhari

by Dolapo Adelana

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday said Nigerians with questionable wealth are the ones being celebrated.

He stated this during the 65th Annual Council Meeting of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in Abuja.
Buhari, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said Nigerians do not appreciate those who succeed truthfully.

The President also said cheating in examination and attainment of fake certificates among Nigerians had become a normal thing because of collapse of values in the society.

He said, “Today the attainment of wealth, power or educational influence is the mark of success which is not necessarily a bad thing except we are no longer concerned with the process of attaining success.

“The end it appears today justifies the means which explains why cheating in exams and fake certificates simply do not generate the sort of outrage that such conduct would have generated years ago.

“Public servants and many in the private sectors who have unexplainable wealth are celebrated in one form or the other with alumni recognitions, honourary degrees, chieftaincy titles and even higher religious titles.

“Often, cheating is with the collusion of parents and teachers. This only reflects the failure of values in our larger society.”
