Bribery and corruption as one of the acts that people do thinking it is a great way of gaining advantage or earning profits only ends up sending or leading to negative effects.
Bribery is the process whereby a person uses or offers incentives to other people in position in an attempt to get a service or offer from them. Some of these incentives may include, money, foodstuffs and even some offer “their body” in return for the favor.
Corruption on the other hand is sometimes mistaken for bribery but corruption is when a person uses his or her power or position or rank or caliber to take something from other people in return to do a favor for them .
The difference between bribery and corruption is that, with bribery, the person offers incentives to the other person to gain favor from him or her but corruption has to deal with the asking for incentives by a person in position before he or she does a favor for a person.
Both bribery and corruption are not good acts and have almost the same effects hence move together.
A University graduate seeking for a job but is not qualified for the job but is not qualified for that job decides to add some incentives to the one in position and in turn gets the favor.
A fine lady also goes to seek for a job and the one in position asks for a sexual inter course (go to bed with her) though she is qualified. She refuses and is not given the job while the manager gives the job to someone who is not qualified but agrees to go to bed with him.
The first scene talks about bribery while the second talks about corruption but they both have the same characteristics or similarities and as well the same effects.
In both scenarios, assume a camera is placed at a place where there is no one or the manager doesn’t know that someone is watching can be caught in such acts and be demoted from his position or even lose his job and again be punished for such immoral acts.
In a case where sexual inter course is offered or asked for, there can be some effects on them if such happens where;
There can be a contraction of Sexually Transmitted Infections.
Unwanted Pregnancy which can lead to abortion, possible death , stigmatization and loss of image.
It again puts unqualified people in position. A situation where a person who is not qualified to be a doctor but is given such job can be of a lot of effects as it puts unqualified people in position. Say the person is not qualified to be a doctor and is given such a job , it can put patients in risk as they sometimes leave operational instruments in the womb of people.
It decreases productivity: Most at times since the people in position are not qualified or not skilled, the work output per unit time decreases as they would use a lot of time for a small task and as such decreases productivity.
Retardation In the development of the nation : Not only does such acts affect an individual but it also affects the country as a whole. How? Low productivity due to the placement of unqualified people in position leads to the low payment of tasks and as well low produce of which the nation depends on and as such makes the nation unable to complete all that they intend on doing. They are not able to do the social amenities and other developmental tasks that the nation may need.
Bribery and Corruption is something bad and must be stopped since it really affects individuals and nations.
