  1. Dr. Badmus, A.J.R.

    May God help us in Nigeria with the way we waste resources not only money. In opinion, many of these parrastals can be combined and that will not only safe money it will also safe other resources such as office spaces, buildings, staffing, computers and other things necessary for any agency to function effectively, if we can mention effectiveness as a sine qua non for any agency in Nigeria. It is a surprise for us that were educated in Nigeria in the sixties and early seventies up to secondary schools education levels and had a very enviable educations as demonstrated by our performances in overseas colleges and universities without all these duplication and redundancy been available in Nigeria then. Let me make some suggestions from my ignorance and see how much resources and money we can safe. Why can’t we do the following: A. Combine 1.Universal Basic Education, 2. Nomadic Education Council, 3. Nigerian Institute for education planning and Universal Education together. B. Combine National Examination Council with JAMB. C. Combine Commission for College of Education 2. National Teachers’ Institute 3. National Education research & Development and Administration. D. Combine National French Language Village and National Arabic Language Village. E. Combine National Library of Nigeria with Librarian Registration of Nigeria. F. Combine National Business & Technical Board of Nigeria with Computer Registration Council. As we can see we will have six instead of seventeen different bureaucracies. That is why it is very frustrating and it is a bureaucratic nightmares trying to do any business registration in Nigeria. There are too many offices to go to and unfortunately all of them are doing the same thing. Dr. A.J.R. Badmus.
