Nigeria, a country famous for its many internet scams, is no stranger to corruption. During an investigation to weed out ghost employees from a bloated government workforce, investigators found that a one-month old baby was also on the payroll.
"We discovered that a one-month-old baby was among the employees of one local government who is paid a salary," [Garba Gajam, justice commissioner for Zamfara State,] said.
"What is even more astonishing is that it was indicated in the payroll that the infant holds an ordinary national diploma," said Gajam, revealing that the discovery is a "widespread trend in the local government service where senior officials stuff payrolls with the names of their wives and children".
