A pressure group, Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership (CACOL), has blamed the poor state of governance at all levels in the country for the worsening living condition of Nigerians and deplorable state of infrastructures.
Executive Chairman of CACOL, Debo Adeniran, stated this in a parley with newsmen in Lagos, accusing the government of adopting anti-people foreign policies which had further improvised Nigerians, stressing that the country could not developed beyond its present position because public funds were been siphoned by political officer holders.
Adeniran lamented the worsening security situation and killings in several parts of the country, while berating the security agencies for its culpability which had showed in failing to arrest the perpetrators and sponsors of the killings. He said, “The history of successive administrations in the country is that of daylight robbery, brigandage, arbitrariness, abuse of office and deployment of state contracts for political patronages. This negatively affected and frustrated the performance of these contracts leading to abandonment and neglects.
“Our social infrastructure and amenities like roads, power, water, health, education, libraries, mass housing etc were the victims of this rudderless policies. Even when a state like Lagos took it upon itself to ensure that Federal roads are motorable, the government refuses to reimburse such states.
