President Bola Tinubu says Nigeria has sufficient manpower to spur development across all sectors of the economy.

According to a statement issued by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, Tinubu spoke on Friday while receiving a report titled “Industrialisation, energy security, and climate change: Issues, challenges and prospects” submitted by the senior executive course 45 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), in Abuja.

Tinubu commended the report for pointing out the challenges faced by the country and assured that his administration would integrate the recommendations into ongoing policies.

”I give you credit for a good job done. This report will be treated with all seriousness,” Ngelale quoted the president as saying.


“You have fished out the issues. You have noted the challenges, and you have recommended very constructive solutions and showed the roadmap to achieve sustainable development goals for our country. Definitely, our hope is renewed.

”Who says that we do not have it as a country? Commitment to research and development; that high level of inquisitiveness, the manpower needed is here.”

Ayo Omotayo, director-general of NIPPS, said the institute which is an apex institution for policy research and strategic studies in Nigeria, is mandated to chart the country’s course of national development.


”Our mandate encompasses the rigorous analysis of complex policy issues, the formulation of forward-thinking strategies, and the cultivation of visionary leaders capable of steering Nigeria towards a prosperous and sustainable future,” Omotayo added.

He said participants of the course engaged in a series of lectures and seminars, brainstorming sessions, as well as study tours to 13 countries and seven states in Nigeria.

The senior executive course 45 comprises 97 participants drawn from federal and sub-national governments, security and intelligence agencies, civil society, the private sector, and labour unions.
