Irony: There is no governance in Nigeria – Ezekwesili
« on: November 07, 2013, 08:29:20 AM »
Pioneer Director-General of Budget Monitoring and Price Intelligence Unit (Due Process Unit), Dr Oby Ezekwesili, has called on Nigerian leaders to take seriously, the corruption charges levelled against Nigeria by economy monitoring organisations, both nationally and internationally.

She spoke at a forum on leadership organised by the Day Star Christian Centre in Lagos on Wednesday.

According to her, if the current administration claims to be fighting corruption and rating bodies still scores the country high in graft, it means no significant progress had been made in the fight against the menace.

Ezekwesili, a chartered accountant and a co-founder of Berlin-based Transparency International, said after 53 years of independence, Nigeria had no governance but merely “massive transaction of operations”.

She said: “There is no good governance in Nigeria. Good governance is about governance that gives the highest possible results and it is on the basis that most of the time, the best choices of policies are being made and that results are being clearly achieved.

“If you look at the misalignment of our resources and the results, it will tell you that we have less than the kind of effective governance that we should have.

According to her, “The government should review the rankings and tackle corruption as it should to ensure that obstacles hindering Nigeria from becoming great are removed. http://dailypost.com.ng/2013/11/07/corruption-there-is-no-governance-in-nigeria-ezekwesili/
