Detoxifying Corruption Poisonous Stings:
Corruption and humanity are like siamese twins, seemingly inseparable. Even from garden of Eden, the code of conduct was breached. Notwithstanding strings of guidance through the Angels, the Prophets and the Scriptures, the natural laws are observed more in breaches by humans than in exception.
In Nigeria, the foundation of Executive and Legislative formations were laid with corruption, being products of rigged census and voters registers. The building blocks of Fedeco, Inec et.al. were of Poisonous Stings, akin to fruits from poisonous trees, they are anything but independent. Detoxification, becomes a near impossibility as the public and civil servants saddle-able with such responsibility are immersed in corruption as fishes is in the water.
The Judiciary basking in the euphoria of independence, just like the Legislators could not contend themselves being a last hope of the system, the rewards must be here on earth with overflowing bonuses.
Like the fishermen or hunters, they need the steam and strengths to drive the expeditions. Unfortunately, a Dino is around to remind all the stakeholders of their new status.
“The latest dimension in expansiveness of not only their mouth, but of their stomach”. Like graduating from monogastric animal stomach to that of RUMINANT animals 4- compartments (rumen, reticulum, omasun and abomasun), complex stomach structure within a 4 year tenure, short period.
Patching the mole hills with brittle, quick yielding, sandy soil with saliva as binding adhesive, may not be an option.
Much overflogged restructuring may also be far from being the solution.
Rather painfully complete overhauling, as in blind pull down of the badly designed, dilapidated structure, is the ultimate way to go.
Going to the medical operating theatre may be scary for a dying patient, but the ultimate cure is of importance to future livelihood.
The detoxifiers must be enamored against fool proof, apolitical, detribalised, non-nepotic and other negative existing traits.
It is only then, that a conducive atmosphere could be provided for new design as in workable Constitution, reliable engineering works, aesthetic/economic architectural layouts, prudent economic management, functional education, prioritisation of infrastructural provisions based on needs and many more, can be installed for future development and growth.
Any imported ideas and system not strategically domesticated will continue to lead us astray, as the patent will never be exchanged nor the copy rights may never be ceded under whatever guises to us by the originators.
What’s your take on this? Let’s pounder on this to make Nigeria work again.
