OPINION: Can We Truly Achieve Transformation in Nigeria?
Sometimes, I usually ask myself this particular question over and over. Not until when President Muhammadu Buhari reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to the fight against graft in the country.
He said Nigeria needs a corruption-free public sector to achieve transformation. He insisted that if corruption is not eradicated, it would kill the country.
The truth is that when government at all levels work together, the leaders need to serve the country in team work, team spirit and artistic spirit, while the positive impact of the government’s efforts would publicly manifest.
Both the Government and Nigerians need to deploy resources to address common needs rather than the greed of a callous few.
Together as a nation, as a people, the three arms and three tiers of government working together, we can attack corruption and realise the vast potentials of our country. We need a corruption-free public sector to achieve this transformation. We need a judicial system that dispenses justice without undue delay and technicality.
We need laws and legal system to be reformed to deliver justice to every citizen without regard to status and finally we need ethical re-orientation of the people to achieve this goal. When we work together against corruption, we can defeat it and achieve transformation.
