CMD urges government to prioritise human capital devt.



The Centre for Management Development (CMD) on Thursday urged government at all levels to make human capital development a priority for national advancement.

CMD made the appeal in a communique issued at the end of the 26th annual conference of Heads of Training and Development in the public and private sectors.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that the a four-day conference took place in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The communique, signed by CMD Acting Director-General, Mr Bitrus Chinoko, said that capacity building of personnel should be captured in budgets because human capital development was critical to the growth of any sector.

It advised the government to consider the adoption of knowledge management system within the public sector and encourage succession planning through knowledge creation, sharing and utilisation.

According to the communique, government must also encourage more Public Private Partnership (PPP) in capacity building for national development.

It, however, charged the Nigerian Council for Management Development (NCMD) to develop an automated system that would remind accredited trainers and training institutions when their certificates were due for renewal.

Private and public institutions should be sensitised on the need to patronise only the NCMD accredited training institutions and trainers, ” it said.

CMD said:” there is need for public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy to adopt an electronic governance to fast track national development.

“Nigeria needs to have an integrated database that can be accessed by all parastatals for uniformity of bio-data and for fostering security.
