Nigerian War On Corruption Poster

Nigeria's government, police, civil services, and businesses are plagued by extortion, bribery, and other forms of corruption. While many point to a failure of leadership, corruption is largely a byproduct of an economy fueled almost exclusively by petroleum exports. With no vested interest in developing Nigeria's infrastructure and manufacturing sectors, the wealthy simply profit from oil while the nation falls ever deeper into economic chaos. Recently elected President Obasanjo has vowed to crack down on corruption and bribery.

In the center of this poster we see Obasanjo attempting to lasso corruption in the form of a bull which is, in turn, trampling on Nigeria’s economy. Surrounding this image are small details showing the extent to which corruption pervades Nigerian life.

The beleaguered judicial and law enforcement agencies of the Czech Republic could definitely benefit from the new “corruption busters” academy being established by Interpol to target fraud.
The research and training academy was originally intended to help the authorities of the formerly Soviet-dominated lands of the region to clean up their acts. But the rapid globalization of organized crime has ensured that all countries must learn how to collaborate if they are ever to beat the common enemy.
Fraudulent transactions cost the global economy an estimated 110 billion euros per year. They lubricate criminal activities in many spheres from human trafficking and organized prostitution to terrorism, money laundering and drug-running.
A disturbing recent report issued by the World Bank concluded that corruption is on the rise in the Czech Republic. Its authors estimated that well over 25 percent of enterprises routinely employ graft to find favor with public officials. They found that serious bribery allegations are being leveled at politicians and public servants at virtually all levels of administration.
