because it is an oppotunity to loot the treasury.if politicians are paid minimum wage,these thieves will not want it.
It is because we give too much powers to those in authority. They all long for power to back and protect their stolen wealth and illegal investment. It we hold all those with questionable wealth accoutable with stiffer punitive measures it will reduce the do or die politics. Also in addition to what Chris said reduce the powers politicians wedge.
The system encourages corruption at every level;politicians go to funny levels to get funds to prepare for the contest. The progressives are not encouraged to join partisan politics because of lack of money to run for elective positions.


The Nigerian political landscape is so porous.  Politicians make money so easily becuuse we have a very weak check balances in the system.  That explains why those who have been there will never let go.  They will go to any lenght to make sure they don't lose out.
