THE HEIGHT OF TRANSPARENCY AND OPAQUENESS IN GOVERNANCE: PRESIDENT BARRACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, AND HIS PREDECESSORS.

Well as we all know, Barrack Obama, the 44th president of the United States of America, born August 4, 1961 in the town of Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S , is the first black president of the United States Of America. He has been in power since November 4, 2007, when the presidential results was announced, till date. So far in office, he has not come short of his campaign manifestos, as he has delivered  and served the United States of America and the whole world to the best of his capabilities. He is truly a man of his words. Well, what baffles me, and as a matter of fact instigated this post is the sharp contrast in the daily lives of Barrack Obama and African Presidents, particularly Nigeria. The transparency in delivery and the non concealed operation of the government associated with American Government, when compared to Nigeria and Africa in region-generality. Using the location of the seat of power as our object of personification. THE ASO ROCK AND THE WHITE HOUSE.The white house is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C., while Aso Rock (Presidential Villa) is located in Abuja, Nigeria. No one knows the street exactly, how the building looks like, more than ten gates to pass, with heavily armed foot soldiers, police, S.S.S and body guards sprawled within and around the premises. This simply depicts how concealed the operation of government is, and how the people are cut off from being partisan in the affairs of their own country. The White house is visited by many residents of the United States, when its open for visit, and alas depicts the transparency in the governmental affairs. This trend is not only peculiar to Nigerian Presidents, but Africa predominantly. A saying goes "he that perpetuates evil, is he who resides in the dark and runs when no one pursue" Why will a leader(s) choose to live and lead from darkness, when the notion behind democracy simply preaches transparency, honesty  and freedom. There are many instances that could be sited within the African circle of Power that depicts the evil perpetuated in darkness. Lets leave it at the location of the seat of power, lest all heavens let loose.

TAKE A LOOK AT FEW OF BARRACK OBAMA'S PHOTOS IN PUBLIC AND SAY IF ANY AFRICAN PRESIDENT CAN BE SEEN AS A REFLECTION OF TRUE AND SINCERE ACT OF GOVERNANCE.
