ABUJA, Nigeria January 14, 2018
The Suprim Investments has confirmed that a letter was sent to the President of Nigeria proposing some strategic actions that can be taken to rapidly resolve the key challenges facing Nigeria.
It is now the case that the Nigerian government is currently bugged down by THREE major road blocking challenges. These are
1. Economic Development Challenges
2. Anti-Corruption Challenges
3. Anti-Security Challenges.
Based on the allied subjects relating to the “Economic Advancements of Nations”, the President is hereby advised to use this opportunity to begging to implement this major proposal to deal with the key problems currently affecting Nigeria. If the programmes below are carried out properly and urgently then the government will not only resolve the challenges above but will also begin to move Nigeria forward on the road to Industrialisation. The proposals are
TRANSPORTATION: THE KEY TO RAPIDLY ADVANCE OUR MARKET ECONOMY BY YEAR 2025.
In the present Nigeria, ours is a market economy, an economy with a huge propensity to buy and sell, an economy with the highest population in Africa, indeed it is an economy that does not get tired of hustling despite the poor provisions that have been made available for this market, Nigeria. Surely, we must change that.
The proposal is for the government to start to build a comprehensive national network of railways that will pass through all the state capitals in Nigeria.
The map below shows the proposed routes for the National Railway Network;
NB: All the hand drawn lines are the proposed East/West and North/South Networks (altogether there are 9 Networks)
A better presentation of this map can be arranged if required, indeed a prototype with actual trains can be arranged for your office and for presentation to key stakeholders.
Research has shown that a comprehensive national railway network is a prelude to the national industrial and market advancement on Nations.
The prayer is that President Buhari will use this proposal to create a “Vision 2025 Industrial and Market Advancement Strategyâ€? for Nigeria. It will be a major national physical, socio-economic regeneration programme. I assure the President that the scale and scope of the economic shift that this programme will cause will be the biggest for black Africa, ever, and it will cause an African ripple throughout the Economic world.
Without exaggeration, with this programme you can comfortably start to plan to put one million or more Nigerians to work across the country, and they will thank you for it. The programme as described below may also be used to address the Corruption and Security challenges.
It is proposed that the implementation of the programmes be divided into two parts as follows
PART 1: THE HARD SIDE
The Physical Construction Programme â€“ National Railway and Warehousing Infrastructure
a) To construct the Railway lines that would pass through all the state capitals and some major cities in Nigeria (as shown in the map above). And this shall be known as the National Railway Network. More details shall be provided regarding the provisions of Trains, Maintenance, Running and Management of the Networks for profit, safety and cleanliness.
b) To construct twenty to thirty industrial warehouses along the Railway line or around a station in each of the state capital. This will help to create and manage the sophisticated modern industrial and construction nation that we are about to build.
PART 2: THE SOFT SIDE
The National Socio-Economic Regeneration Programme â€“ Organisational Development
This part of the programme is essential because Nigerians have very poor track records on how to create, nurture and manage clean and sophisticated organisations, we must improve our competencies.
a) This programme would be created to Improving the Characters and Competencies of Nigerians for Organising, Compliance, Investing and Managing effectively and efficiently. This is a monumental strategic programme, it is possible, it is doable but there are serious caveat. The caveat must not stop us; indeed we must take it on like a â€œWar Strategyâ€?. We must do this.
b) The second of the Soft Programme is a deliberate (covert) attempt at developing a suitable Industrialisation Strategy for Nigeria, this particular programme will enable and encourage some carefully chosen billionaire business moguls to create production industries in selected market sectors (not oil).
THE REQUIREMENTS FOR SUCCESFUL IMPLEMENTATION
The funding of programmes like this are colossal, but it is within the gift of Nigeria to do this, if it is not possible this proposal will not be put out. However, more funding details will be announced more fully as soon as we get the right attention and commitment to deliver this programme.
Organisation and Contracts
During the delivery of all the four programmes above (two from each part) some aspects of the governmentsâ€™ structures and methods would need to be reviewed in order to update our management systems to cope with the new sophisticated systemic requirements. Also too much politics would cause delivery problems, therefore the politics must be controlled at the top.
