The other day I and a friend were having a random brain storming session. Although she is a Barbie looking, always fully contoured, with nails did ajebutter babe, she is a very patriotic woman, who as much as possible buys Nigerian. She has been holidaying in Nigeria for some time now (well at least one new state a year). She is someone who strongly believes in Nigeria.
She mentioned something that I thought was a very very interesting concept. She was very passionate about the fact that in light of recent developments with regards to the availability of forex and the current value of the naira on the parallel market, one would expect elected officials to set an example for the average Nigerian to follow. She stressed that this would be in tune with effective leadership in a time of economical uncertainty.
She then drops the bomb shell…..
“how different would Nigeria be right now if all elected officials, and their immediate families, were mandated to receive medical care and undergrad education in Nigeria just like the average Nigerian citizen”
It was an interesting discussion to say the least, hence I would love to get your honest opinions on this.
How would this affect the state of the nation’s hospitals and schools?
Do you think the same politicians who will be caught in this mandate would pass same?
Is this even necessary in light of the imminent “change” in the corrupt old ways of the countries?
