My People:
A welcome order, if ever there was one.
The BVN – or some equivalent – should be looked upon as a Social Security number, to digitally identify every Nigerian citizen.
This forfeiture order should be followed by one requiring full disclosure of flesh-and-blood ownership of landed and moveable properties country-wide.  These are some of the ground-clearing administrative re-structuring that must be done before political re-structuring of the country, lest things get worse.
It appears that the Buhari administration may not be able to fully solve past or even present corruption in the country – given the mish-mash of political operatives in its ranks –  but it is at least exercising some political will to institutionally reduce future corruption, if these steps are not reduced in Trumpian fashion by future administrations.
We shall see.
