PART ONE

SERIES: CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA

THE NATIONAL BLUEPRINT FOR A BROAD-BASED DISSECTION OF AND STRATEGIES TO COMBAT CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA

PROLOGUE

THE GREAT SUMMONS

Throughout the length and breath of Nigeria, the bugle is being blown to summon all Nigerians to answer this national call. This call is to be Nigerian in all things Nigerian without recourse to ethnicity and violence; this call is to be humane in all things and be selfish in nothing. It is a summons to integrity; courage; to excellent service to humanity, this call is to every Nigerian to occupy their minds with serious things; to wipe out injustice and lay the foundation of an egalitarian society of fraternal proximity, to be punctual to work and to be committed to our employers. It is a summons to the employer that the worker deserves his wage; it is also a summons to workers not to turn their places of work into places of merchandize. Yea, it is a summons which places loyalty to fatherland above all else, to creativity and individual initiatives; to every Nigerian to carry their own cross and depend less on the Government; it is a summons for purposeful and visionary leadership and a dedicated, creative and committed followership. This call is an appeal for dialogue and understanding; it is an appeal against endless borrowing by the Government; it is an appeal for the diversification of the economy and a form of privatization that is fair to all concerned.

Berlin, Germany: Snom Technology AG has announced its second phase of its global transformation by moving the U.S. headquarters closer to the technology hubs of Silicon Valley and San Francisco which aligns with Snom’s strategic and tactical development and deployment of cutting edge technologies which includes advanced lines of professional business telephones, an applications development platform (Snom.io) and cloud support services that empower Snom’s partners to deploy the best telephone solutions in their business customer sites. Snom will continue to maintain its East Coast presence for tech-support and back office operations.
