VIEWPOINT: INTERNALLY DISLODGED PUBLICANS (IDPs)

Most privileged citizens, considered or supposed wise and trustworthy by the citizenry, when saddled with the responsibility to set and promote standards for best practices and exemplary conducts, for national development, knowingly or unknowingly create loopholes and hypocritically cut corners.
