Recently, Nigerian President announced Border CLOSURES taking a leaf from China.
The move was supported by the First Lady, Aisha Buhari using China as a reference point.
There were two Public Policies that catapulted China to world Powers:
(1) Death PENALTY on Corruption
(2) One Child Policy per couple.
It’s pertinent to note that Chinese government enacted death PENALTY on corruption in 1989; and the policy has been sustained till date.
The sustainability of the policy is highly commendable since after 30 years when it was enacted.
Many past Chinese Presidents were executed on the accounts of corruption.
In Nigeria; you’ll observe that the makers of the law would be the first to break the law.
The most interesting aspect of one child policy was that it caught across everyone. The one child policy was enacted in 1980 to 2013. Everyone abided by the policy; hence no exemption including presidents and governors.
In 2013; it was lifted to two children per couple.
If we can emulate China on border CLOSURES; let’s emulate them on corruption and one child policy.
