“The public sector is a key driver of a nation’s economic development, and by offering this world-class executive education programme to public servants, the Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation has shown a commendable commitment to the development of the nation. I congratulate all programme participants and urge them to take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain new knowledge that will help them be more effective in their roles,” she said.
Dr. Yemi-Esan expressed optimism that their participation in the programme would be of immense benefit to the civil service, as the officers would be exposed to best practices in contemporary public sector leadership from world-renowned scholars and outstanding practitioners.
