CAN’T OUR STATE GOVERNORS BE ENTREPRENEURIAL IN THEIR THINKING?
Do you know that all the campaign promises made by Governors can be achieved, if only they sit down to think and be resourceful with the innate capacities in their respective States?
How do I know this?
As an Entrepreneur, you don’t have all it takes to achieve a venture before setting out, but along the line, you are able to thrive against all odds and make it a reality.
For instance, do you think Dangote had it all figured out before setting out to built a refinery? Definitely not.
He took loans and I mean huge loans from banks to finance the massive project, the facility had some issues which is normal with business, yet he is keeping afloat well.
Part of what fuels the laziness of our State Chief Executives is the guaranteed sum of money that will and must come from the “heaven” of Abuja, thereby making them to plan for it and with it to develop their States.
Can any Governor in North Central Nigeria mention one factory that has been built either by Government or public private partnerships? Yet some are still owing salaries, in their second tenure and planning to go to NASS in 2023!
“Being broke is lack of cashflow or liquidity at the moment, being poor is lack of a mindset to generate liquidity or cashflow”-Dr. E. I. Shaibu
The mindset to generate liquidity and cash flow is what is needed and not a guaranteed inflow from the centre and the largesse is “sweeting” them
