What Happened To Vision 2020??? by BE811APP: 4:53pm On Jan 09, 2020
Back in 2008 I was tired of hearing about vision 2020. We are now in 2020, has the vision be achieved or reached?



The Vision 20:2020 is a dream statement that Nigeria will become one of the first 20 economies in the world by the year 2020. Abdulhamid (2008) traced the history of the dream to a research conducted by economists at an American Investment Bank, a fall-out of which was a prediction that Nigeria would be in the league of 20 top economies by year 2025. This was based on assessment of its abundant human and material resources and on the assumption that the country’s resources would be properly managed and channeled to set economic goals. The then President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, next muted the dream as Vision 2020 (Onyekakeyah, 2008).

According to Nigeria Vision 2020 (2008), the National Council on Vision 2020 (NCV2020) is the apex body of the operational and institutional arrangements for Nigeria’s Vision 2020. The President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the Chairman. It is to provide leadership and direction to galvanise the nation. The process involves a bottom-up strategic planning to ensure ownership by all stakeholders. Other terms of reference for the NCV2020 have been clearly spelt out to include approving the core national priorities to guide the process; ensuring the quality of plan document, appropriateness of targets and practicality of strategies; review of progress and giving further direction; ensuring the active involvement of all stakeholders in the visioning process; approving the framework for resource mobilization from private and other stakeholders; approving a comprehensive planning framework for annual budgets and medium-term plans and issuing of any other directives
considered desirable.

it was intercepted by "transformation agenda in 201" then dealt a hard tackle by "Change in 2015" followed by a long term injury by "next level in 2019"

That is the sad part about different govts.
Dreams and visions should be kept alive no matter who is in the government at that time.. as most of the "Change" and "Transformation" agendas are all dead on arrival. cry embarassed

Nigeria is NOT a country, but still a company owned by her Majesty. They can issue vision this and that but it is to deceive you all in thinking you will one day have what the likes of France and China have. BUT U NEVER WILL....
