By issuing orders that ensure the federal systems will be open to scrutiny, and that the members of these institutions will be answerable for their conduct and their capacity to do the job, clearly shows a maturity and clarity of thought and purpose. In the first instance, what these commands indicate is that these high profile positions are not ornamental nor are they there for merely the enjoyment of that power. They are there to see that the public good is enhanced and that efficiency and commitment are the priorities. In the second instance, the insistence that there be an annual review is certain to further an already high standard of work but also makes for a very demanding schedule for those vested with authority. The message is unequivocal. If you are given the privilege you deliver on it. In the third instance - and this is an impressive ordinance - the demarcation between appointments in non-profit setups and involvement in profitable set ups when there exists the power to regulate the latter underscores the elimination of any conflict of interest. By disallowing any individual from using his executive authority to favour a specific entity, Shaikh Mohammed has created an ethical basis that is certain to pay dividends and give those in public life a profoundly valid value system to work with. By putting into place the revitalised code of professional conduct the leadership has also signposted the call for a higher level of competence in high places, as it takes on the challenges of the hi-tech age and maintains its position on the cutting edge of good governance for the betterment of its people. These steps also create a healthier relationship between the private and the public sector and galvanise their functioning because each knows where it stands with the other. The unified criteria that will now be employed makes sure of that. It has to be said that this decree could well serve as a blueprint for other countries wishing to improve their standards of governance and willing to wipe out waste, overlapping of power and a shortfall in answerability for the consequences of one's actions.
