Change is institutional.Euro American societies are not honest than Nigerians but there are institutional mechanism that has consciously and unconsciously registered conformity in man.Human tendencies to beat the system is global but institutionalisation of CHANGE enhances charity begins at home.Innovation and reforms will cement change.The present administration is institutionalising change in all ramifications. In the area of hygiene and environmental sanitation people are consciousness of neatness because the government has made brilliant solution and has zero tolerance for environmental abuse.Sanitation has been integrated in the systems.
Anti corruption driven technology in the area of TSA has been institutionalised.Treasury single account no longer make snakes to swallow money.The ruling party has been historic in addressing looting of public fund.This administration has exposed corruption and tendencies to be corrupt has been institutionally handcuffed. In civilized society the system will red flag looting. Implementation of Treasury single account has beautifully registered accolades for the integrated operations of central bank of Nigeria. We are all living witness to Ikoyi gate ,look at what JAMB and immigration, custom has remit.Even institutions of higher learning. Therefore, institutionalising change will increase conformity and reduces conspiracy and untimely death to few honest Nigerians. A goat owns by everyone if not institutionalised will die of starvation.
Institutionally creative,change begins from you and I will go effectively beyond morality if government institutionalises change in science to discourage human tendencies to beat the system. Law should be strengthened not to be esoteric. Lagos state government has been creative and more of institutional mechanism is expected. If you violate traffic rule in USA nobody runs after you ,your fine is waiting at your door step because your social security number will signal your location. Nigerians who disobey here obeys beyond the shore of Nigeria because there are institutional mechanism that makes the system above anyone. When you stay so long in the dark you will begin to see in darkness. Change begins with me and become more effective in institutionalisation. This has become the focus and implementation of this administration. Unless and until the right thing is done ,the right thing can hardly be achieved. Let change be institutional.
