I keep wondering why it is so difficult for the Nigerian government to ensure development.
Development is actually very easy, especially in countries with an enormouse financial ability like Nigeria.
It is a matter of ensuring an effective utilisation of our Basic factor endowments , to stimulate the creation of some advanced factor endowments.
It just as simple as stabilising the Nigerian Macro environment, to make the Micro-environment efficient.
Imagine electricity supply. A basic infrastructure that is meant to be non-negotiable, in terms of provision. Tens of billions of dollars has been poured into it's rehabilitation, yet it remains dyfunctional. How come other countries have constant electric power supply, even when they are not as rich as Nigeria.
What about Security? Why can't our police be enviable? What is so difficult in providing adequate police equipments and adequate training. Why can't they be paid well?
The most painful one is the construction of roads. Why can't the government bring out money and construct very good and regulated roads. Since Nigerians don't mind paying toll fees, why can't they embark on a govt-private sectore initiative to solve the problem?
I don't understand what is making our government officials so anti-developmental. Even the ones that claim to be good get carried away when they get into power. It is a big problem that needs to be solved.
After all said and done, I am increasingly growing worried about the dishearteneing trend. [i][/i]
