As Tinubu asserts his own

As Tinubu asserts his ownIt is imprudent to hastily draw conclusions when a scandal erupts in our political realm. While it may stir hopes of change, it could end up as a fleeting bubble, disappointing expectations. 

However, considering the scandal involving Dr. Betta Edu, the suspended minister of humanitarian affairs, it's worth speculating on its implications for the country under the President Bola Tinubu administration.

The early emergence of this scandal in the administration's tenure aligns with a tradition in our governance system rather than the minister's susceptibility to monetary allure. 

Such scandals are symptomatic of our flawed system where public officials act with impunity, creating sacred cows immune to scrutiny. 

The ongoing chaos in governance mocks our sense of duty to the nation.

In the current system, public officers fashion their own rules, behaving as emperors and empresses in their domains. 

Financial instructions meant to guide expenditures are disregarded, and public officers view public funds as their personal treasuries. 

Corruption flourishes, benefiting individuals at the nation's expense, eroding collective wealth.

The comprehensive decay of the system has left it incapable of self-regulation, failing to enforce accountability and good governance. 

If the current scandal prompts Tinubu to overhaul the system, curbing impunity and ensuring accountability, Dr. Betta Edu's actions might lead to positive change in the near future. 

This could be an opportunity to expose and address corruption, demanding accountability from all public officers.

While our nation tends to be cynical, there's hope that the current actions by the president may bring about positive change. 

Two significant developments support this optimism. Firstly, the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs is under EFCC scrutiny, revealing financial irregularities. 

Secondly, the government is extending investigations beyond Edu to catch collaborators outside the system, a positive step in combating corruption.

This scandal might serve as a catalyst for Tinubu's administration to address critical issues, demonstrating intolerance for corruption and signaling a new dawn for the nation. 

Accountability should take precedence, with no sacred cows. 

The president's decisive action in response to the Edu scandal is a prompt and commendable move, indicating a commitment to tackle corruption and impunity.

Scandals, particularly those involving corruption, are unwelcome for administrations, as demonstrated by the Betta Edu scandal embarrassing Tinubu. 

It serves as a reminder that Buhari's promise to eradicate corruption fell short. 

Now, Tinubu must rejuvenate the anti-graft war, ensuring that corruption no longer defines our national character and that impunity is not a badge of honor for public officers. The hope is that the president will uphold accountability and renew our nation's prospects.
