Emeka Amakeze, a Nollywood actor and filmmaker, says civil servants are the most corrupt set of people in Nigeria.
In a post on his Twitter page on Sunday, the movie star challenged the perception that politicians are the ones who majorly indulge in corrupt practices.
Politicians may take the shine because of their flamboyant lifestyles but nobody beats Civil Servants in the race for title of the MOST CORRUPT.#EndSARS

Amakeze also argued that politicians’ involvement in corrupt practices is usually easily noticed by the people because of their flamboyant lifestyles.
“Politicians may take the shine because of their flamboyant lifestyles but nobody beats civil servants in the race for title of the most corrupt,” he wrote.
It was not immediately clear what informed his post.
His comment, however, may not be unconnected to the recent happenings in the country triggered by the #EndSARS protest.
The #EndSARS protest started as a campaign against misconducts of the now-disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS) and expanded focus to overall police reform.
Amid the protest, some Nigerians also called for a comprehensive improvement in the country by highlighting several demands including a reduction in the cost of governance.
