Bill Gates’ Comments on Economic Growth Plan of Nigerian

 

The federal government says contrary to comments made by Bill Gates, co-chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, human capital development is a priority in its economic blueprint.

 

Speaking on Wednesday at the expanded national economic council meeting, the Microsoft boss had said the execution plan of the blueprint does not prioritise human capital development.

“The Nigerian government’s economic recovery and growth plan identifies investing in the people as one of three strategic objectives,” he had said.

“But the execution priorities don’t fully reflect the people’s needs, prioritizing physical capital over human capital.”

Udoma Udo Udoma, minister of budget and national planning, made the federal government’s position known in a statement signed by Akpandem James, his media aide.

“To demonstrate the commitment of the government to improving human capital development at the national level, the federal government has made significant increases in capital allocations in human capital related sectors in the last three years in spite of dwindling revenues,” the minister said.

He said the Buhari-led administration has increased the capital expenditure for health and education.

“In addition, the current administration has launched a wide-ranging Social Investment Programme which caters for human development for which a total budgetary allocation of N500 billion has been provided in the 2016 and 2017 budgets as well as the 2018 budget proposals.”

“A close reading of his statement shows that the point Mr. Gates was making was that the human capital development should have been explicitly indicated as part of the execution priorities of the ERGP. This is not the same as saying that the ERGP does not address human capital development.”
