NIM expresses concern on poor state of economy, outlines strategies
The Nigeria Institute of Management Chartered (NIM), has expressed concern on the current poor state of Nigeria’s economy and suggested improvement measures.Executive members of the Institute, led by its Chairman, South Council, Asaba, Delta State, Sir Emmanuel Okeibunor Okafor who paid a courtesy visit to the newly appointed Head of service in the state, Reginald Bayoko, noted that the economy will continue to dwindle if Nigerians and its leadership are over dependent on oil.
According to him, the inability of Nigerian exporters to meet delivery targets has destroyed the confidence built over the years by overseas importers of Nigerian products.
Noting that the present crisis in the economy industry portends worst times, Okafor said: “What we are facing at present is a phase, we will overcome all processes that have brought us to this stage, the economy will certainly improve. It is only a matter of time and patience; it is correct that we are facing hash periods, we will overcome soon.”
Okafor while congratulating the Head of Service, called on him to throw his weight behind the Institute.In his remarks, the Head of Service, (HOS) Mr. Reginald Bayoko, thanked members of the institute for finding it necessary to visit him and urged them to support the SMART agenda of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa.
Meanwhile, the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Chairman, Suuny Ogwu, also gave a matching order to the contractor handling the construction of UBE special vacation school Mbiri, Ika North East Local Government Area to correct the finishing defects in some of the buildings in the school within two weeks.
Ogwu at the inspection of the board was not comfortable with the poor finishing work in some of the building inspected, adding that the contractor will be brought to book if the work was not properly done.
