President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that those responsible for Nigeria’s problem and what it will become are the elites.
Speaking on Thursday during the graduation ceremony of 78 participants of the Senior Executive Course 42 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, the president said the young and dynamic fast-growing population that is feeling disempowered and alienated is a threat to national stability.
Buhari, who was represented by the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, noted that his administration recognizes that the government needs to support the Nigerian genius in industries and enterprises for the country to grow economically in the private sector.
“Job creation and youth empowerment can be undertaken at scale by the private sector, but it requires government officials to encourage enterprise by promoting the ease of doing business. “For many Nigerian entrepreneurs, the government is perceived more as a hindrance than a help, whether in terms of taxation, infrastructural deficits and the general lack of an enabling environment.”
“This too is part of your unique privilege. Your high station affords you the license to make choices based on your preferences and perceptions as well as to register dissent with directives that conflict with your values through official channels.
“This institution and this course, in particular, were established to enrich the exercise of official discretion with sound judgment and strategic discernment.
“The bureaucracies to which you belong will either rise or fall on how ably you wield your discretionary powers.”
