Onno Well said. I will like to join Chinedu in inviting the Government of Nigeria to give serious thought to the reasons for the failure of past initiatives on employment generation. What have we achieved with NDE, SMEDAN and NAPEP? Are there good reasons why these programs are not visibly making the so much desired difference. What is the effect of politcising some of these laudable programs? Government should set up a Committee of senior citizens to review the performance of these programs and come up with a decentralized approach to job creation efforts in the country. I see no reason why a Federal Agency will go to Ogun state to distribute motorcyle or tricycle in the name of poverty alleviation when the same can be done through the state machinery at lesser cost. That an item of development is on the concurrent list should not be mistaken as an opportunity for duplication of efforts. To my understanding what this mean is that such issues are so important that both the Federal and State governments should focus on them. President Jonathan should give priority to this line of thought as another May 29 comes around.
