Eminent Professor of History, Akin Mabogunje, on Wednesday observed that Nigeria was full of people of ideas and good policies, but that its leaders lacked the ability of implementation for the development of its citizenry.

Mabogunje, who is the Chairman of the Ibadan School of Government and Public Policy (ISGPP) established by former Permanent Secretary in the Communication Ministry, Dr. Tunji Olaopa, said this in Ibadan at the inauguration of the 34-member Public Policy Group, a think tank of academics, egg heads, captains of industries, with the objective of forming policies for the government to turn around the fortune of the country.

He said that there was the need for government and all stakeholders in the socio-economic development to prioritise on areas requiring urgent attention for policy development and articulation, while lamenting the rising trend of restlessness and security breaches were offshoots of bad policies and inability to implement good ones.

According to Mabogunje: “There is clearly a glaring need for government and all stakeholders in the socio-economic development to prioritise on areas requiring urgent attention for policy development and articulation.”
