In Nigeria and largely Africa, politics is seen as a gateway to wealth and the satisfaction of selfish interests rather than to serve the people.
One social media user named Karel Van Oosterom posted a picture of the Prime Minister of Netherlands, Mark Rutte riding a bicycle to work.
“This is one of the reasons I am proud of the Netherlands – the way our Prime Minister goes to work” he captioned the picture of Mark Rutte exicitedly riding his bicycle to work.
This is an abberation to the opulent lifestyle associated with the heads of government of other countries including Nigeria where leaders move around in expensive motorcade with stern-looking body-guards.
Mark Rutte has been described as a very humble man who pursues the general will of the people.
