Dr Mimiko also has to come up with tough targets for his commissioners. For instance, the education commissioner has to cut class sizes to 35 within a year or lose his job, the works commissioner must tar 500km of road a year or lose his job, the health commissioner must cut infant deaths by 10% a year or lose his job, the water resources commissioner must give 5,000 people potable water a year or get kicked out.
Dr Mimiko must also come up with revenue generating programmes designed to make Ondo State self-sufficient without any federal allocation. He should have projections that look like this: cocoa – $10bn; bitumen – $10bn; tourism – $10bn, palm oil – $5bn, timber – $5bn; transport – $5bn; kolanuts – $5bn; cassava – $5bn.
Would you say the government has achieved any of these ?
