Election is the bedrock of any democracy because it offers the citizens the opportunity to elect those who will lead them. To be able to properly vote for candidate, there are usually the process of promise and acceptance of programs, projects, ideas and plans. These promises which are usually made during campaigns are now referred to as campaign promises. During elections, they are made in their thousands, both realizable and non realizable promises. When non realizable promises are made to sway citizens to vote for candidate who from the beginning has no interest in realizing the promises, it changes from promise to campaign swindles.

Therefore honesty and working well with other coworkers are considered to be good work ethics as well. In Nigeria, particularly in public or government service, lack of honesty or integrity has been responsible for the high corruption level and the current low level of development.
