NILDS’ Permanent Site- Challenges to Sustainability
The, Director General, National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies, NILDS, Prof. Abubakar Olanrewaju Sulaiman has expressed optimism that the Institute can start operating from its permanent site before the year winds down.
While on an inspection tour of the site on Friday, June 7, 2019, the DG said that the site is a key resource that needs to be well utilized, maintained and continually improved upon in order to support the achievement of the Institute’s priorities in teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange.
Progress of work on the ultra- modern training centre has slowed down drastically as a result of dwindling funds; Suleiman, however, made a passionate appeal to Julius Berger, Nigeria Limited to return to site and accelerate the speed of work in order to make good their assurances. “Apparently the budget has just been signed, very soon, I hope releases would be made, what really takes chunk of the time is implementation; but we’ll see what can be done” he stated.
On completion, the NILDS’ permanent site will be in the league of Dubai Knowledge Park which is a human resources management, professional learning and educational free trade zone campus.
