"Oversight is not a one-man exercise. It is not like the Usain Bolt 100 meters run. This is like a long-relay run.
The first runner is the National Audit Chamber who conducts audits and produce the report.
Then the second runner is the legislature who deliberates and issues recommendations for follow-up.
Then the third runner is the Executive, who improves its systems and performance based on the recommendations.
