Why Southeast Is Underdeveloped, By ISMN
THE Institute of Strategic Management of Nigeria (ISMN) has identified absence of common vision as bane of underdevelopment of the South East region.
Enugu State Chapter Chairman of ISMN, Prof. Joseph I. Aneke, stated this during the yearly summit and decoration of fellows in Enugu. He remarked that the differences in political group should not in any way affect the uniform development of the region.
The chapter chairman strongly advised the region’s political and business class to close up and work together for the development and common good of the people.
According to him, the only way to realise this was to embrace a common vision, which could give rise to a common strategy that will bring about development of the zone despite political differences.
The chapter had earlier decorated four of its fellows during the summit. They include Dr. Innocent Chukwuma, chairman, Innoson Group of Company; Prof. Titus Enudu, Director at ESUT Business School, Enugu; Dr. Mike Okwudili, Rector OSISATECH Polytechnic, Enugu; and Chief Aloysius Okafor, bursar, Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT).
Aneke said the investiture was in recognition of the excellent role being played by the recipients in building and development of the country.
Speaking after his investiture as grand fellow of the institute, the third after Major General Abdulsalam Abubakar (rtd) and Alhaji Lateef Jakande, Chief Chukwuma, charged the ISMN to look inwards and devise more creative ways of assisting the people to be self productive, saying it was the only way that burdens of governance, especially on employment could be tackled.
