Shortage of skills

There is a substantial skills shortage in Nigeria. Almost a quarter of young adults did not complete primary school and are without the basic skills needed for work.

This is made more acute by the significant number of higher educated and skilled Nigerians who work in other countries.

A problem with PPPs?

The use of public private partnerships (PPPs) are important for Nigeria but doubts have been raised about the legislative basis for PPPs and the official capacity for PPP governance at both state and federal level.

Leadership matters

The significant challenges facing Nigeria call for the highest quality of leadership in both politics and at business level, encouraging the most from the workforce and facilitating the best use of technology.

Appropriate action from the business leadership community in response to significant disruption that the economy is facing is clearly seen as a significant driver of change in the public sector.
