Experts express worry over Nigerians’ nonchalant attitude to change


For Nigeria to secure the future of its citizens and minimize the impact of current economic situation berthed by the pace of change in the country; the nation’s professionals must come together to build skilled and competent change managers across all sectors of the economy. These were the conclusions of the Registrar of the Institute of Change Management International, Joseph Anetor and Obiageli Nwobi at the maiden investiture/Induction ceremony of the Institute of Change Management International.

The duo who spoke differently during the program in Lagos yesterday also lamented that many Nigerians are extremely reluctant to change unless they experience a crisis. They both argued that many Nigerians seem to need a wake-up call before making the changes necessary for their survival.

Speaking further, Anetor advised the nation’s professionals to constantly lean together through robust academic and practice-based interactions; understand the nation’s economic challenges and understand the perception of an attitude towards change because it is the only way to move the country forward. He, however, disclosed that his institute was created as a response to the urgency to close existing gaps in the change management practices of professionals in the country with a view to providing professional support that creates opportunities for individuals, businesses, organisations and institutions.
