If the over-speeding and reckless siren-blasting cars conveying public officials are applied to the delivery of mandates for which they were appointed, Nigeria would have been the most developed country in the world.
For example, it took us over twenty years to tweak our oil and gas industry’s obsolete laws.
ASUU has been on multiple strikes over negotiation-based issues for over a decade. In 2013, our universities were closed for 6 months. Between then and now, there have been pockets of closures. The current strike has now entered its 6th month and may set another record.
If we applied the hurry and break-neck speed as seen with the driving culture on our roads to the enunciation and implementation of policies in our public spaces for the good of Nigerians, there is no way ASUU would still be on strike.
I pray that someday, we shall have a government and a people that shall display less haste on the roads in exchange for more haste in the building of infrastructures for the benefit of Nigerians. So help me God.
Grace and peace!!!
