Is It Proper To Do It In Workplaces?

Most employees in small and big firms collude with dealers or suppliers to inflate prices when asked by their employers to arrange for furniture, computer equipment, even Xmas gifts & Sallah rams for (corporate) clients, office stationery and ordinary tissue paper. Cost of purchase of buildings are increased at times by a whopping 500%. Hotel bills, petty contracts up to NEPA bills are inflated. COMMITTEES IN CHURCHES AND PASTORS ARE ALSO FULLY INVOLVED IN THIS ACT DURING BUILDING AND RENOVATION PROJECTS. I am fed up with what I see and hear.

My questions are:

1. IS IT GOOD/PROPER TO INFLATE PRICES?

2. IS IT POSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE NOT TO STEAL IN THEIR WORKPLACE?

3. IS IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE WITHIN THEIR MEANS/INCOME AND STILL BE COMFORTABLE?

4. IS THIS ACT BEING SMART OR WHAT?

5. DOES EVERYBODY DO IT? (MAYBE I AM THE DUMB FOOL THAT DOESN'T!!!)

The replies, as expected, maybe scanty b/c this is probably not the so-called “A HOT TOPIC”, but, please, air your views. This is a serious issue. Of course, you choose to remain silent rather than being unruly.

I think u ask questions with obvious answers. We all know it is not good, it is not being smart, it is possible not to do it and not everyone is doing it.

I think d question u shld be asking is why & if/how is it possible to stop?

IMO, i think those doing it make those not doing it look like fools. If we have true leadership everywhere who inspire honesty, might be one of the ways out.

If the conscience is dead and i am the one that has to tell the person what to do, then, the person is as good as o robot being directed to a path he is not even sure of, i can only answer for myself, and even for me, situation and condition i found myself sometimes counts.

That is why it is so difficult to eliminate corruption in Nigeria - Every one is involved - and they have the guts to accuse their leaders
