Note to government-linked firms: Fix yourselves before fixing the economy.
IS THIS POSSIBLE WHEN POLITICIANS MAY BE IN LEADERSHIP ROLES especially AS IT MAY BE PERCEIVED THAT SOME MAY HAVE THEIR OWN AGENDAS INSTEAD OF INTEREST IN THE OBJECTIVES OF ESTABLISHING THE GLCs?
Further how many have expertise relevant to the core activities of the GLCs or Agencies to which the politicians are appointed in leadership roles and thus be able to make positive contributions to the GLCs bottomline?

SHOULD COMPARE THE PERFORMANCE OF SOME GLCs WHICH HAD POLITICAL NOMINEES IN MANAGEMENT POSITIONS AND CONCLUSION MAY BE OBVIOUS.
Bless all
