Not really everyone, but Kirikiri ain’t really enough, why put the warden and policemen under the pressure of taking bribe, those corrupt kingpins and their pawns alike should be put in a place where they’d be practically impotent…
@Sunshine if you cut budgets and reduce expenses and avenues for theft, you’ll save money and increase our account balance, but what happens when you leave office only for some corrupt nut-head to take over?
I’d like to be a typical Nigerian leader. SO first of all, my wife and our nation’s FIrst Lady, will take a break together with our in-laws and embark of familiarisation tour of Europe. We will pause in Dubai and check on the Saudi King the next day. Then we will proceed to the Holy Land for some revelation on how to “impact” on the lives of “our people.” By the time I return, if Boko Haram has not finished the entire nation, I will set up a committee to investigate the “remote and immediate causes” of the crises and recommend solutions in 6 months.
His Excellency @excellency, I just intended to mimic typical Nigerian leadership. I have a number of radical ideas to implement as President of Nigeria. To begin with, I would assemble a formidable team of visionaries in my cabinet. I will not appoint a woman Minister because she is the wife of the Chief of Benin. Nor will I appoint a man anything because it is the turn of his father’s village.
Secondly, I will seek out the best qualified people wherever they are and irrespective of what they think of me as a person. I will send very strong signals across the nation from the top that our laws are meant to be implemented fully. OFficials of my government will know that they cannot commit a crime and hide under the umbrella of “family affair”. I will commit myself to a broad national vision of peace and freedom for all people and will not hold any personal ambition above this goal.
Institutions of the state will be strengthened by a strict policy of non-interference with their operations. There are a number of other policies I’d implement, but the core of all of them will derive inspiration from my personal integrity and commitment to high moral and ethical standards. I will not just be the President; I will be a leader and an example in all good behaviour and will demand and enforce same among my officials.
