President Muhammadu Buhari’ s recent visit to Imo state has continued to generate reactions from the public. It should be recalled that the number one citizen of Nigeria was in the South- East state on Thursday, September 09, 2021, to commission some state projects, and also meet with Igbo leaders to discuss political issues. Since his visit, many Nigerians have continued to take turns in reacting to their observations on the President’ s visit.

As many Nigerians are still reacting to the President’ s recent visit to Imo, it is my view that there are 3 important things we should learn from some of the things that happened during the visit.

Checkout the things below

Nigerians are gradually moving away from being bought over with money.

It is no longer news that Imo state government, spent a whooping sum of 700 million Naira to hire Buses and crowd expected to troop out and cheer the President during his visit (source: Sahara Reporters). Arguably, the deserted streets of Owerri, after such a huge amount of money was spent, has undoubtedly proved that Nigerians are gradually moving away from being people that could be easily bought over with money.

Fear still remains the greatest instrument for the control of human behavior.

It is arguable that fear of the unknown is behind the people’ s decision to stay indoors during the President’ s visit to Imo state. Recall that there was a form of fear among many residents of Owerri, over what could happen during the visit. The fear arguably played a role in the people’ s decision to desert the streets. As such, it has been proved that fear still remains the greatest instrument for the control of human behavior as postulated by rational choice theorists.

Power can never be the same as authority

The thin line between power and authority is the acceptance of the people. Without this acceptance, the level of corporation between the one exercising such a power, and his subjects, may not be a smooth one. As such, in a situation whereby you cannot apply force on the people, it may be almost impossible to get the people to comply. This acceptance, which separates power and authority, cannot be ruled out from the reasons behind the deserted streets of Owerri during the President’ s visit.

Arguably, understanding that people are gradually becoming more conscious of events happening around them, and are no longer easily bought over with peanuts, and the fact that acceptance of rulers by the ruled smoothens the relationship between them, would go a long way to improve governance in the country. This can be learned from the events that took place during the recent visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo state.
