The biggest challenge my country is presently
facing is bad governance. I’m from Nigeria.
Bad governance created an avenue for corruption to creep in to the systems at the helm of the affairs of the government which led to mismanagement of country’s resources which then led to high rate of inflation, high rate of poverty, insecurity and eventually underdevelopment.
Artificial intelligence can be leveraged at the helms of the government to curb bad governance.
Nigeria has a population of around 200 million people as at 2020 with 16% as youths between ages of 15-35 and 46% below the age of 15.
The government can use AI to digest information that pertain to specific population demographic and inform allocation of resources based on the information gotten.
AI could help inform the government on which infrastructures to invest in based on the information from present population demographic.
This can go further into aiding the government in making policies that are better suited for economic growth. For example. AI can be used in analyzing data about importation trends, the government can leverage AI tools to stay informed and make pragmatic actions to ease up importation of those products.
The government can also use the information to set up local productions of those products and initiate foreign trades that will generate revenue.
With the application of AI at the helms of the government, the country’s resources will be better managed, if resources are properly allocated and the economy is growing, the rate of poverty will be drastically reduced, this means politicians won’t be able to leverage poverty to control the people anymore.
Once this is happening, bad governance will be reduced as people will be empowered and not dependent on politicians hand outs, they will be able to vote for who they truly trust to bring economic growth rather than who paid for their votes.
I believe AI can play a huge role in curbing bad governance in my country and hence, solve corruption, help fight insecurity, inflation and help bring about development.
Kindly share your thoughts.
Thanks for reading.
