Fighting corruption beyond the norm

The issue of corruption and the devastating effect it has ad on Nigeria as a country has been a recurring decimal for a very long time now. It has been a thing of concern and the greater percentage of the citizenry are worried about it. With the exception of the about five percent of the population that constitute the political class or those affiliated to them, the rest of the people have over time continued to feel the pain or the evil fallouts of the institutionalized corruption in the land. Political leaders are not likely to be of help since they are feeding off the bad situation. And the situation can only go from bad to worse if nothing is done to stem the tide. This paper is of the view that religious leaders have a vital role to play in this all important fight against corruption and have indeed the capacity to effect the desired change because of the respect and authority they command as moral authorities in the society.
