NIM blames Nigeria’s worsening insecurity on poor mgt
Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) has attributed Nigeria’s heightened insecurity threatening all fabrics of the society to age-long poor management of the challenges.
“Insecurity and kidnapping did not start today in Nigeria but they have increased because the nation did not manage the problems properly”, Patience Ehizogie Anabor, president and chairman of council, of NIM said.
Speaking at the unveiling of the 60th anniversary logo of the institute in Lagos, Anabor linked the causes of insecurity to many factors, including poverty, greed, corruption. “All these put together are capable of causing insecurity and cause negativity in the system”.
She said the institute established in 1961 by a group of management professionals to bridge perceived gap in management of the nation’s public and private sectors, has always made input to government on how to address national issues.
According to her, the institute’s annual management conference slated for September this year will also deal extensively on insecurity, food security and leadership challenges. She noted that challenges in both public and private sectors will be hard to be solved if there are no efficient and effective managers.
Anabor cautioned that Nigerians don’t need to be in government to make Nigeria great but by practicing fairness and integrity in their service. She said the theme of the anniversary lecture ‘Celebrating 60 years of management excellence: Poised for more’ will be delivered by Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala, the director-general of World Trade Organisation (WTO) while John Momoh, chairman of Channels Television will be one of the discussants.
