Buhari’s Government May Remain In Power Untill 2030, Reveals Very Big Plans For Nigerians

The Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF, and the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, have commenced a Human Capital Development, HCD, plan, towards moving 24 million Nigerians out of poverty, before 2030.
The NGF, disclosed this in a statement by its Head of Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, on Friday, in Abuja.
Bello-Barkindo said that the plan is jointly embarked on by the Forum and the Office of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

He stated that the process commenced on Monday, in Kaduna State, and culminated in Ekiti State, on Thursday.
According to him, the overall vision of the HCD, is concentrated in three thematic areas, which were education, public health and nutrition, and the workforce.

“Human capital is the stock of habits, knowledge, social and personal attributes embodied in the ability to perform labour, to produce economic value.
“It is unique, and differs from any other capital. It is needed for people to achieve goals, develop and remain innovative”, Bello-Barkindo said.
He noted that the Core Working Group, CWG, of the plan, led by Yosola Akinbi, of the Vice President’s Office, commenced its sensitisation tour in Kaduna State. He said that Akinbi at the State, met with Gov. Nasir El-Rufai, and the State’s HCD Focal Person, Sagir Ahmed.

Bello-Barkindo, however, noted that in spite of the strides of the HCD project in Kaduna State, drug addiction was impeding the progress of the youths.
He added that drug addiction is also the cause of crimes in the State.
On his part, the NGF Chairman and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, pledged total commitment to the vision of the HCD.
Fayemi said that several HCD plans initiated during his previous administration, were jettisoned by his predecessor, adding that, they were now gradually being returned to the governance tray.
Bello-Barkindo disclosed that the CWG also visited the Chairman of the Ekiti State Traditional Council, the Alawe of Ilawe, Oba Adebanji Alabi, as well as some youth groups in the State.
Alabi told the CWG, that while Ekiti State is the fountain of knowledge, it is still groaning under the weight of adult-illiteracy, because most elderly people are left behind in erudition.
The youths said that though they were allowed to make input into the budget, they would still like a bigger role in the State.
