“Politics has dominated governance and as a result, our policy formulation and therefore, implementation. Our job has to really integrate many of the separate and sometimes conflicting initiatives to different agencies … At the end of the day, while we improve, while we reform many of the institutions, one thing remains – it has to operate as one government, as one policy instrument, as one operation, as one status. Until such time, we will remain subject to the same relations.”
