Nigeria is Ostensibly An Epicenter Of Parochial, Directionless, clueless And Egocentric Management: Covid-19 Palliatives in Focus -By Emmanuel Menseh Madaki, Esq.
Nigeria is fraught of poor management, corruption and weak bureaucratic establishments. It’s an axiom that since attainment of political independence, Nigeria has by no means been ruled by selfless, really transformational and intellectually endowed leaders. That’s, Nigeria has by no means chosen its greatest sons to positions of management and mediocre management can solely result in mediocre authorities with none severe achievement. What has been frequent over time in our governance is the enthronement of hegemony, clueless, parochial, attitudinal debauchery and uninspiring leaders, with attendant formulation of sequence of ill-informed and poorly carried out insurance policies/civil service reforms which decapitated the service, resulting in the exit of devoted, competent bureaucrats and offered incentives for corruption (Ogbu, 2013)
Globally, the power of achievable developmental strides of each nation is commonly largely decided by the standard and selfless nature of her leaders. Nonetheless, when there’s a visibly obvious tradition of impunity and injustice in any society and there’s a large unfold of lack of management by instance to enthrone clear and qualitative public paperwork, a dwindling degenerated signs of underdevelopment continues to manifest as exemplified in Nigeria Public Administration. The manifestation of signs of underdevelopment doesn’t indicate Nigeria lacks high quality and competent human sources to engender improvement, however the means of enthroning leaders is riddled and bedeviled with disaster and it doesn’t present room for morally upright, competent, visionary leaders to emerge. Imhonopi and Ugochukwu, (2013) aptly seize Nigeria’s scenario thus: Nigeria is richly endowed by windfall with human and materials sources vital for nationwide improvement and development. Nonetheless, since gaining political independence, Nigeria has continued to meander the trail befitting failed, weak and “juvenile” states.
A state that had very nice prospects at independence and was touted to steer Africa out of the backwoods of underdevelopment and financial dependency, Nigeria continues to be caught within the league of very poor, corrupt, underdeveloped, infrastructurally decaying, crisis-riven, morally bankrupt and leadership-deficient nations of the South. Relatively than grow to be an exemplar for transformational management, trendy paperwork, nationwide improvement, nationwide integration and innovation, Nigeria appears to be notorious for no matter is mediocre, corrupt, insanely violent and morally untoward (p78). Historical past has proven that no nation within the large world grew and loved regular improvement in virtually all spheres of its nationwide life with out experiencing good and selfless political management (Ogbeidi, 2012). That is primarily as a result of qualitative development and improvement has consistently been a product of fine governance. Nearly all of Nigerian elected workplace holders are product of political corruption, they bought their occasion tickets via political godfathers and mandate via election rigging. Corruption is used to amass and maintain political mandate in Nigeria, resulting in grievous penalties of mass poverty, unemployment, corruption, indiscipline in management, insurgency, terrorism and insecurity.
It’s past disputations that the outbreak of coronavirus got here in firm of plenty of miseries and obvious hardships to enterprise homeowners, center class and the downtrodden within the society because of the fervent train in combatting the menace of the pandemic which was characterised by a number of lockdowns and uncompromising orders and insurance policies on restrictions of actions and obligatory stay-at-home to keep away from the blistering unfold of the virus. Certainly, Nigeria noticed totally different phases of hardships and painful dwelling as survival grossly grew to become that of the fittest with out extra. Through the containment interval of the pandemic well-meaning Nigerians clothed with philanthropic gestures made a number of of donations to ameliorate the devastating affect of Covid-19 on the perishing plenty as palliatives.
Surprisingly, the Authorities of a number of states of the Federal Republic of Nigeria inclusive of the Federal Capital Territory refused, ignored and or uncared for to distribute the palliatives to the painful detriment of the dying plenty. The plenty particularly the Youths armed with concrete details about the whereabouts of the palliatives determined to invade the warehouses the place these palliatives have been saved as a way to assist the ravaging starvation threatening their survival. This to me, is the direct consequence of unhealthy governance and management orchestrated by wickedness nursed and fed by depraved set of Nigerian leaders. Nigerian leaders together with the Governors of assorted states who refused to share the palliatives to the general public ought to bury their heads in disgrace as they’ve misplaced the arrogance of the individuals and this singular incident of non-distribution of the palliatives has actually uncovered the venom and wickedness of their hearts and the plenty now know crystal clear that the hearts of theseselfish Nigerian leaders are removed from the pains of the plenty. The palliatives have been hoarded, the plenty saved struggling and dying on every day foundation with out succor and any recognized assist, but this authorities retains parading itself as preventing the menace of corruption, what could possibly be extra corrupt than hoarding meals meant and earmarked for distribution to the poor and weak within the society? This to me is the peak of obvious manifestation of corruption.
True leaders in any nation are the important thing to a brand new world. It’s virtually inconceivable for any nation to enhance, change, and develop with out true management. True leaders are selfless, they assume extra of the following era. If Nigeria goes to achieve success we’d like true leaders. Management is just not measured by how many individuals that serve you however how many individuals you serve and impacted positively. True leaders don’t search followers, however followers are interested in true leaders. Management is just not a proper of the chief however a privilege given by the followers and the chief should respect the followers. Management success is measured by the success of your successor. Regardless of how nice a frontrunner might have been if he couldn’t produce a successor, he’s a failure. That is true of a mother or father, a instructor and a politician. A real chief should have the ability to mentor those that will succeed him in order that his legacy won’t be destroyed. True leaders don’t have seat-tight syndrome. Thoughtfully,management disaster manifests in any nation when the leaders are characterless, clueless, self-seeking, grasping, parochial, focus-less, visionless, mission-less, uninspiring, attitudinal debauchery, unwilling to relinquish energy, inconsiderate, unfair, high-handed. Regrettably, these are the qualities of Nigerian Leaders.
In all honesty, no sane authorities or Governor would ever go about looking the Youths wherever who forcefully took a few of the objects meant for them as palliatives warehoused in obscurities and none of them needs to be prosecuted in any competent court docket of legislation for such causes. The Governors who refused to share and or distribute these palliatives ought to bury their heads in disgrace for perpetrating the ungodly. Our leaders are self-seeking, depraved and cruel of their dealings and the wrath of God will befall all of them that refuse to reply to the plights and hardships of the plenty. Let our leaders know that, the Youths of right now are extra acutely aware of their rights than the Youths of yesterday, don’t mess with them.
