Well, some of them are trying their best but the major problem they have is that they are very political in nature and not people-oriented, they are loyal to the government of the day even if it will only benefit a few individuals up there and let the people they are meant to serve to be downtrodden. Take the case of the NNPC saga, they keep on importing fuel while neglecting our refineries that would have provided jobs for the public whom they are meant to serve but only benefiting their cronies who are into the importation of fuel business. Its high time we have to be vocal.
