Nigerian Leaders Must Be Responsible

Leadership, Stories 28/05/2020 by Cynthia Ene Agbo

Sometime last year the outbreak of a deadly virus called Coronavirus has taken the lives of people in multitudes. I ask myself, could this be as a result of mismanagement, nonchalant attitude or irresponsibility of the leaders?

All thanks to COVID-19 for making them realise the need for immediate development in our health care system by providing and equipping it with proper and necessary amenities for its citizens.

It is indeed a pity that our leaders have failed us today. The greedy and selfish interest of most of our leaders has put this country in the mesmerising stage it is today. It is indeed a big shame and slap on the faces of our so-called leaders that the money and relief materials that was meant for the poor masses has disappeared into thin air. It is so unfortunate that people die more of HUNGER VIRUS than COVID-19.

The mismanagement of funds which cannot be accounted for, because the major and proper processes and platform in which accountability should be taking serious has been gambled with and politicised which has given room for continuous looting and fraudulent activities of the country’s economy into the “snake’s Belle”.

A few months ago our leaders travelled out to receive “proper and adequate” treatment from foreign countries and abandoned our hospitals here in a total mess and lack of adequate and proper facilities. All thanks to COVID-19 for making them realise the need for immediate development in our health care system by providing and equipping it with proper and necessary amenities for its citizens. It is time we learn our lessons and seek rather for the better development of this great nation?

It is indeed time for power to change hand.
