What A Difference In Governance Culture And Experience

WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN GOVERNANCE CULTURE AND EXPERIENCE ( Emeka Ugwuonye Esquire) Due process advocate (DPA) The American President underwent a medical procedure in the same city where his office is located. Because that procedure would require him to be sedated for 90 minutes, he transferred presidential powers to the Vice President. The reasoning is simple. For the 90 minutes of sedation, the President would be unconscious and unable to perform his duties as President, should the need arise. To make sure there was not even a minute gap in the consciousness of the holder of that office, the President had to transfer that power for the 90 minutes. Compare that with Nigeria and you will see a stark contrast. Our President falls sick and travels overseas for treatment. The procedures he undergoes include those that would induce coma for days. That is; days of total loss of consciousness followed by months of total incapacitation. Yet, the Nigeria President may never transfer presidential powers. It happened under Yar Adua and it has been happening under the current President. How do you judge the situation? What more does this tell us about the quality of public governance and leadership in our country? Are there things we ought to do differently?
