This according to him is in concurrence with the resolution of the two chambers of the National Assembly.

He observed succeive governments had failed to implement their draft development plans.

“ Sucessive government since Lord Luggard never planned to fail but have always had plans and in most cases those plans were drawn by some of the best brains available. But why did we fail?”

Why do we love to waste resources to plan but hate to implement the plans? We must muster the discipline to overcome this shortcoming if we must sustain the coming economic rebound,” he said.
