Senate President, David Mark, last week traced the failure of governance in Nigeria to lack of political will to strictly implement government laws, policies and programmes
Coupled with this is corruption largely fueled by people who are benefitting illegally from the present status quo
Speaking at the opening of a public hearing on the Liquefied Petroleum Gas Council of Nigeria (Establishment) Bill, 2009, organised by the Senate Committee on Gas, Mark said
“It is best for us to legislate; but have we got the will power, after legislation, to deal precisely with what we have addressed and what we want to do without allowing those who are in the business now, who have the monopoly to derail us and do things the old way, and do business the usual way still?
I think that is the key issue we have to address at the end of the day.
