Her name is Stella Ladipo, the principal partner in one of the prominent management training and development centres around. She is also a council member, Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM), and she is a recent recipient of the Chris Abebe medal award, from the Nigerian Institute of Management, an award given to her in recognition of her meritorious contribution and significant services to the progress and growth.
In an interview recently granted Ladipo shared, among other things, her concern over the spate of corruption in the country. Asked what she thought about the spate of corruption in our country, the management guru said:
“We have laid too much emphasis on money; we are ruled by money and have become slaves to it. Money is a spirit, it can make one misbehave as well as destroy. Take a look at lives of those at the hems of affairs disgracing themselves and their families. Everywhere you find leaders and public office holders embezzling millions and billions of Nigerian money just to enrich themselves at the detriment of the poor masses. For goodness sake the funds that are embezzled belong to every citizen of this country not a group of individual.”
Also, on what can be done to solve the problems of corruption in the country, Ladipo said:
“I still have that believe that what Jerry Rawlings did in Ghana when he became president is the solution to corruption in Nigeria. When he came in as president he killed all the corrupt leaders. We must introduce the Rawlings treatment to checkmate corruption in Nigeria. When this is done the tendency of corruption will be curbed.”
