I walked the halls of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, just like Donald Trump. I read the same books as Elon Musk during his tenure there, took the same exams as Warren Buffett, and danced to the same music as John Legend and Shakira did when they were students there . Despite this prestigious education, I was never taught that Nigeria was more corrupt than the USA by Professor Zuckerberg . So, why do people keep labeling Nigeria as corrupt when its level of corruption pales in comparison to the USA? Consider Donald Trump, who declared bankruptcy…
