“This year theme: “Getting Things Done: Strategies for Policies and Programme Implementation in Nigeria” goes to the heart of what is generally considered the bane of development in Nigeria, poor implementation of policies, the proverbial gap between intentional result, delivering on campaign promises. For any policymakers frustration is the same, yet we know about think tank but what we need now is do tank, so your task is already well cut out for you,” he said.
The Vice President who inaugurated the participants through virtual tasked SEC 43 to unlock the mysteries of failed and poor implementation of projects and more importantly provide a practical and nitty, gritty guide to implement projects and policies adding that that is the body of knowledge that is needed today.
