Raising The Standard Of Governance: Why Nigerians Must Keep Faith With Tinubu by Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah

If you give up then there is the guarantee that it won’t happen- Steve Harvey.

No doubt Nigeria is presently at crossroads and there seems to be little faith left for its citizens. The major bane troubling the nation is the current spate of insecurity which seems to have defied the odds. The security agencies are obviously overwhelmed by the ugly menace.

National security is proof for national economic growth and development of nations, investors only crowd where there is peace, while the local players are comfortable taking up the challenge in investing the little they have in the economy devoid of stress and tension.

Speaking the whole day on the deteriorating security challenges facing the Nation would do us no good, we must keep the faith and seek ways of holding forth together.

However, Nigeria’s insecurity is a result of the long neglect of the necessities that are needed to grow any nation by the ruling class.

One of the panaceas to the myriads of problems facing us is raising the standard of governance in this digital age.

The hallmark of a good leader is ensuring the team members have high energy to perform the job at hand to their very best of ability. A good leader motivates the team members by nurturing confidence in them so they take a positive approach to the task ahead.

As we march towards the 2023 presidential election one man who is capable of giving the Nation a fresh breath of positive leadership is the former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The first journey to solving our problems is National Integration, as a Nation, we must bond together, encourage brotherhood and tolerance amongst ourselves.

At this critical stage of our nationhood, it is imperative we elect leaders like Tinubu that are detribalized, committed and patriotic to a united Nigeria in diversity.

If our institutions were perfectly working most of the challenges we face as a nation would drastically be reduced to the barest minimum. We need competent leaders that are capable of building institutions that are sustainable. Institutions aim to promote effective, equitable, participatory and accountable governance as well as the security of life and property.

One of Tinubu’s greatest legacies as the Governor of Lagos State is the laying down of sustainable institutions that creates value for LAGOS State.

In a country that is uncertain, we need leaders that can generate wealth amongst its citizens, the informal sector needs to be developed for optimal performance. Today Lagos is regarded as the centre of excellence because of a flourishing economy, hence it’s ranking as the number three economy in Africa.

So many tutorings can be drawn from the experience of Lagos, which includes the need for an infrastructural framework for good service delivery.

Just decades ago Lagos was a symbol of a disordered Urban city but now Lagos State is a Mega-City. If we must learn to accept reality then we should not celebrate mediocrity. Of all the governors that served between 1999- 2007 only Tinubu can be attributed to laying a solid foundation laced with infrastructure, a good security network and a robust wealth creation system.

If we must choose amongst the crop of leaders parading themselves for the 2023 presidency then Tinubu should come ahead of others.

We must raise the standard of Governance, Lagos State is now a model of effective governance—in Nigeria and in Africa, Lagos State raised its standard of Governance and today the City is one of the fastest-growing Mega City in the world.

Extensive field research indicates that reform commitment in Lagos was driven by electoral pressures as well as elite ambitions to construct an orderly and prosperous megacity.

This is what we need to be replicated in Nigeria today and one man towers above others in our quest for a better society.

Let us keep faith with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and hope for a better country that is consecrated on sustainable institutions that would cater for the well being of its citizens.
