Members of the public received the President’s impromptu visit to city hall with a lot of exhilaration.
They were happy that for the first time, a caring person has decided to have his hands on the job as concerns city hall.
Not surprisingly, the President found several people not being duely served due to indeligence by top executive office.
He said that after perpetual public out crises, it became imperative that he had to have tentative personal palpitation on the overall situation bedeviling city hall.
Of course, people would be happier, if the President is emulated by his ministers such that the cabinet CEOs seriously dispense their duties.
We should see other organs of the government put on toes such as the water agency or the roads and electricity agencies to mention but a few.
Given that the Mayor is currently abroad, his deputy who was supposed to be at hand in office by seven was nowhere to be seen even well after 8 am.
Whatever the case, the important thing was that the President stated the fact that he was nudged by the constant public cry of lack of services especially as concerns garbage collection, town cleanliness, poor roads and associated services.
Trivial issues given, other petty administrative hitches should be straightened out by DGs and their bosses. We should all be sincere to ourselves and our country.
It is quite shameful to wait for the Head of State to call to attention issues when many senior officials should have otherwise straightened things earlier.
The Public Works and Health Ministries should have taken up the poor roads and uncollected garbage issues respectively beforehand.
Their reservations should have been documented to the members of public first if they lived up to their expectations. In other worlds if they made impromptu inspection people could know that they are on toes and the government is really working for them.
If they hit bottlenecks in their dispensing of duties then they would have taken up the matter with upper levels of state administrative apparatus.
Any how it is Kudos for the President and barbs to public CEOs who do not know what they have been appointed for.
We similarly hope that in the same note the President would not hesitate to take swift, appropriate and needful measures against wayward officials.
Thanks again, your Excellency.
