Acting Director-General, National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Brig-Gen. Chukwuemeka Udaya, has noted that the 2021 participants did a wonderful work that if their report is implemented, it will help in turning things around for the country.

The participants, who worked on the theme, ‘Getting Things Done: Strategies for Policy and Programme Implementation in Nigeria’, registered for the course in February 2021 and undertook study tours to 14 states in Nigeria, five countries in Africa and six countries outside Africa.

“Eighty-five of the participants, who registered for the NIPSS Senior Executive Course (SEC) 43 have completed the course and would be awarded ‘mni’ this weekend,” Udaya pointed out.

Speaking with journalists ahead of the graduation on Saturday, November 20, he revealed that as recent as 2018, the report from NIPSS on internal security, which pinpointed the need for community policing, had been implemented, adding that this year’s theme will ensure better ways of getting things done to get the kind of results citizens are hoping for.

His words: “The graduation of SEC 43 (2021) are to hold as follows: the Distinguished Annual Lecture on Friday, November 19, with President Umaro Embalo of the Republic of Guinea Bissau as the Distinguished Lecturer. The graduation is on Saturday, November 20 and the Special Guest of Honour is President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Researches were conducted on national issues in different fields of human endeavour, and all 85 participants completed the course.
“When the government accepts the report, it will help in turning things around for the country. We will start to get the kind of results we are hoping to see.”
