Must There Be A Presidential Task- Force For Everything? by Peterwins(m): 9:54pm On Dec 19, 2012
I am a bit concerned with the use of various "Presidential Task-force" in this present administration. The news media is inundated with "Presidential Task-force on pension", "Presidential Task-force on power", "Presidential Task-force on Port De-congestion", etc.

I think the President should disband all these plethora of Presidential Task-Force. The various ministries, departments and other agencies of government should be strengthen to perform their duties.

What is the use of a Presidential task-force on pension when PENCON exists?

You mean the MDAs should probe themselves?

A Presidential Task-force is not a probe panel. I even got to know that we have a Presidential Task-Force on water!!!! What a waste of scare resources. Yet we have a Ministry of water resources.

What is the use of a Presidential Task-Force on Port De-congestion, when we have the Nigeria Port Authority and other relevant agencies.

Perhaps we should also have a Presidential Task-Force on anti-corruption so that the EFCC and ICPC will now take a back seat.

Using task force reduces bureaucracy and improves expediency. Civil service is the home of corruption hence, A taskforce is needed for efficiency.

I think we'd first need a presidential committee to look into the relevance or otherwise of your question; and then a presidential task force to answer it!

Yes,

There must be Presidential Task Force for whatever the President as the C-in-C wanted to have full grasp of who,what and whom an event occured!!!..........



Presidential Task Force only operate 4 a specified period of time ..... 2weeks,3weeks,1 month,3month and they shall be disbanded........ After the submission of such task force report!!!!!!



Presidential Taskforce is important for the president to make informed decision!!!!
Re: Must There Be A Presidential Task- Force For Everything? by Jimmy Boy: 8:45am On Dec 21, 2012
The task force syndrome is is a way of masking the presdient's indecisiveness in handling burning national issues, so that when you ask about what GEJ is doing about something, they tell you that a committee is working on it.

I quite agree with your statement but the reverse is the case in Nigeria, it ends up been more expensive; inefficient and achieves nothing. Nigeria has not recorded up to 1% success of such task forces

We have some Presidential Task-Force (PTF) that have been operating over 2 years. Also the President does not require a PTF to make informed decision. Good governance is not rocket science.

There is difference between ''Decision'' and ''Informed Decision'' PTF is necessary.....


Good Governance is beyond Rocket Science.....!!!!

The day u become president, u will see the reason for PTF and committe!!!

The day I become president. I will De-mystify good governance. It was done in Brazil, South Korea, Singapore, Venezuela, etc.
Perhaps Lagos State, Edo State, Akwa-Ibom State and some other few States in Nigeria where the people are enjoying some benefits of good governance needed PTF.

Mr President please kindly disband all the various Presidential Task-Force now and strengthen our MDA's.

This was something a lot of tweeps wanted an answer to during the last media chat but I don't know, the presenters never asked him. I've lost count of the committees! At the same media chat, GEJ was asked a question about education and he mentioned setting up a committee to look into the education sector. Dunno what Prof. Rufai must have been thinking.

We must not forget the PTF that looked into our football affairs after SA 2010 - they recommended something, the president went for one thing then he came back to another thing according to him, "after much pressure from Nigerians". I don't know if they've been dissolved yet.

Similarly, when the Super Eagles trained at the Abuja stadium some months ago, the president was not pleased with the terrible state of the stadium. He was actually there on that visit with the Sports' Minister and to my 'amazement', I watched GEJ saying he'll set up a committee to look into why the stadium was in that state. Since this event, I've got no more evidence than to agree with the point of INDECISIVENESS.

A leader isn't expected to be hasty in making decisions but you mention not that among the xtics of a leader are decision-making, planning and oirganising.

With the use of various PTF, the recurrent expenditure keeps getting bloated. We don't need PTF to move this country forward. For example, NAFDAC under Dora Akunyili wasn't a PTF to perform its duties.

What the President need to do is to find fearless and capable people to head various MDA's. Though I don't like the current CBN governor, he is fearless. The former madam at FIRS was competent. What we need from the President is to select and appoint a winning team to head various MDA's.

Peeps,

There is nothing like ;
Q:Mr president what is happening in Education sector

A; A committee has been set upon that
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


The work of PTF and CTT is to Investigate matters/issue or Undertake a particular policy/programme on behalf of the President and give Him a recommendation or a way forward as they (PTF and CTT) deem it fit....


PTF /CTT is not actually taking over the duty of MDAs .........


An issue ma Arise which may Affect say seven(7) MDAs.........e.g Police,SSS,NEMA,Finance,Population,Statistics,DPPR et al

The committe shall comprises of each member of these MDAs and work together harmoniously to achieve the target of Mr. President!!!!

The fact is that a lot can be achieved without these PTF. I raised the question as a result of the PTF on Pension that have not been able to account for N195billion. So many other irrelevant PTF exist that have become a conduit pipe for waste of scare public funds.

How,

Even in any Organisation tasks are being broken down and group of people are attached to undertake such.... To talk of a whole country of 150m population with different xtics...... I bet u wont do it all by urself!!!



Have u heard of ''Division of Labour'' ........ I bet u do ......


To set a PTF/CTT is one thing;

For such PTF/CTT to achieve result is another thing;

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

For instance, when flood happened in southeast,Northcentral and southsouth.

If u ask Mr. President......what has he done about it, he answer; I have gotten people (ctt/ptf) looking into it which implies..... President is looking into it!!!!



I just want u peeps 2 kno that ...... Presidential taskforce and/or Committee is never a big deal also it is the best way to get the job done in any Organisation!!!!


Thanks,
See you later on another thread dude!!!!
