Unaffordable requests from political office holders have been identified as a major cause of mismanagement of the nation’s resources.
Chairman, Nigerian Institute of Management, NIM, Professor Ayo Olorunisola stated this at the fifth edition of the interactive workshop of the Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria, Oyo State Chapter.
At the program called “My Profession”, Professor Olorunnisola noted that the nation’s economy was not being properly managed because political office holders were trying to meet up with the demands of their followers which they cannot naturally fulfil.
He called on Nigerians to stop putting their personal demands on political office holders, and allow them to concentrate on governance.
