Readings in political economy and governance in Nigeria: selected speeches and articles of Chief T.A. Akinyele

Front Cover
A collection of lectures, seminar papers and keynote addresses from the last thirty years, by Chief Akinyele, a top-level Nigerian civil servant. The work is divided into four parts and covers: government economic policies and the private sector; government budgeting; administration and public management; and other topical issues which include chapters on university administration, managing the church in the twenty-first century, and the responsibilities of voluntary organisations in Nigeria. Broadly, the papers argue for the need to narrow the gap between management practices in the public and private sectors in the interest of the health of the national economy. They stress the overarching imperative of resource allocation principles in conditions of scarcity; the need for a slimmer and more results-orientated government; and a better organised private sector, equipped to assume the leadership of the national economy.
