Daily Trust - - OPINION -

for mere for­mal­i­ties not nec­es­sar­ily in the best in­ter­est of the coun­try.

My ad­vice is this; Mr Pres­i­dent should take note when choos­ing his del­e­gates, those who are ready for work and not for poses and self­ies. but he has now rounded his coun­sels in a cor­ner to proof that he got his money from rice farm­ing.

Suc­cess for PPP

For ev­ery leader, un­der­stand­ing and man­ag­ing the fol­low­ing will lead to suc­cess­ful PPP. They in­clude en­sur­ing sound eco­nomic fun­da­men­tals of the pro­ject; struc­tur­ing the part­ner­ship to op­ti­mize cost, qual­ity and in­vestor re­turn i.e. achiev­ing both the public and busi­ness ob­jec­tives; Se­cur­ing po­lit­i­cal cham­pi­ons e.g. Gover­nors, min­is­ters etc. should be driv­ers of the pro­ject, and build­ing stake­holder sup­port; Try to ac­com­mo­date all in­ter­ests and un­der­stand and man­age the fears of stake­hold­ers, as­sess and man­age so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pacts, and foster a sta­ble and sup­port­ive reg­u­la­tory en­vi­ron­ment.

In ex­e­cu­tion, use a dis­ci­plined pro­ject man­age­ment ap­proach to the ex­e­cu­tion, en­gage qual­ity teams of pro­fes­sion­als (both lo­cal and for­eign ex­pert), sup­port a trans­par­ent, com­pet­i­tive bid process, plan for on­go­ing con­tract mon­i­tor­ing and re­view, and avoid cor­rup­tion and in­flat­ing con­tract sum for self­ish rea­sons.
