Visiting without notifying will go along way in addressing abuse of delegated responsibilities. It becomes imperatives considering the ills and challenges of governance for delegated responsibilities to be monitored by the government on the governed in their various official assignment. It is within the DNA of our people to be sycophantic with assignments assigned knowing fully well that he is trusted with such delegation,without being checked, statistics shows performances below expectations always greet a project without proper monitoring, portfolios only with trust and official responsibilities only with friendship.
Honestly examining the microscopic lenses of governance, Competence and sentiment are words and opposite. I know examination are formidable to the best prepared, but record shows that in the academia,impromptu test will show a lecturer the seriousness of a students and the number of attendees. The Governor of Lagos state ,Mr Babajide Sanwoolu ,in his vision and mission statement towards a better Lagos,needs to be pseudonymous in cross checking assigned responsibilities, MARRY TRUST WITH TEST, visit hospitals, schools, agencies of government, performance of LASTMA sometimes with electronic records of events at strategic round about and bus stops and other parastatals without prior notification or Siren or other paraphernalia of his office. He has been humble in removing HIS EXCELLENCY not EXCELLENCE in the delegated responsibilities assigned to facilitate good governance in all ramifications.
Let me zero in on the concept of ensuring professionalism and maximum performances towards a better Lagos and Nigeria as a whole both personal and institutional assessment of delegated responsibilities is required to score goals of satisfactory dividends of democracy to the governed. Let me sound a bit scriptural for every twelve, Judas Iscariot is certain and also remembered that Jesus Christ was betrayed with a KISS not a BLOW. The most trusted unchecked can be unforgivably disappointing. Cross checking is not about doubt but it is to put everyone on their toes and correct or stop abuse of privilege towards a better Lagos. PALLIATIVES should not be class SOUVENIRS as against the principle of accountability, transparency and equitable distribution of Common wealth to the weak and disadvantaged.
I have a dream of a better Lagos with an altruistic ,intelligent, a democrat and attentive Governor of Lagos state, if wisdom of visiting without notifying is considered as a substance of his administration and law is not cobwebby to sabotage of a better Lagos. Thank you all.
