The Punch - - MONEY -

Aleading con­sult­ing firm in Africa, Phillips Con­sult­ing, has asked the Fed­eral Min­istry of In­te­rior and other gov­ern­ment agen­cies un­der it to em­brace tal­ent de­vel­op­ment, tech­nol­ogy and team­work in or­der to achieve the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s promise of tak­ing 100 mil­lion Nige­ri­ans out of poverty by 2023.

The state­ment was made dur­ing the Min­istry of In­te­rior’s re­treat in Osun State which was han­dled by pcl re­cently.

Dur­ing the re­treat, the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, pcl, Mr

Robert Taiwo, stated that only tal­ent de­vel­op­ment, de­ploy­ment of tech­nol­ogy and team­work among the staffers across the min­istries and agen­cies of gov­ern­ment could de­liver the gov­ern­ment’s promise in 2019 by 2023.

he said, “The re­treat was de­signed to gen­er­ate in­no­va­tive strate­gies, poli­cies and pro­grammes for re­form­ing Nige­ria’s in­ter­nal se­cu­rity agen­cies, thus en­abling them to fur­ther ad­dress the chal­lenge of in­se­cu­rity in the coun­try.”

he added, “There was sig­nif­i­cant fo­cus on how the min­istry will ex­e­cute the projects and pro­grammes that will de­liver the man­date.”

The man­ag­ing di­rec­tor said, “Gov­ern­ment project fails due to the fact that agen­cies of gov­ern­ment fo­cus on cost in­cre­ment and scope creep.”

he ex­plained the power of pur­pose and how it was im­por­tant for the pres­i­den­tial man­date and its un­der­ly­ing ra­tio­nale to be shared across all facets of the min­istry and its sup­port­ing agen­cies.
