Niger Delta Youth leader To FG, Stop Incessant Change of PAP Leadership, It Affects Proper Management of the Programs,

By EgbemaVoice, Abuja—A prominent youth leader and development expert, Dr. Matthew Ayibakuro has said that frequent change of heads of public institutions and interventionist agencies distort their plans, policies and programmes. He said it is therefore almost impossible to assess them when they are axed from office as the period they spent would have been grossly insufficient to make any real or meaningful impact. Ayibakuro stressed that some good intentions and well thought out plans of heads of such agencies of government are easily truncated when they abruptly leave office, leading to avoidable waste of public funds.
