USA Africa Dialogue Series - DIEZANI ALISON-MADUEKE: Some Questions

The stories of Nigeria's former petroleum minister make rounds everywhere: on social media, press, television. Scandalous. Very scandalous in the scale, if true. 
Some questions:
  1. If she could steal so much, how much, then, would Abacha, Babangida, Obasanjo etc could possibly have stolen?
  2. Is there a total lack of institutional control in a govt. that a minister can just steal, and steal, and steal? Is the civil service dead?
  3. If institutional controls are so weak, what is the worth of democracy?
  4. Can this kind of democracy create strong institutions? If it cannot, why can't we rethink it?
Where is Samuel Zalanga? His analyses on matters like this are always peerless.
