He emphasized on strategic efforts made by the government to consequently improve their welfare, stressing that the allowances of Soldiers would be paid promptly, as provisions of adequate insurance policies are already in place to manage events that may cause the lose of life of Armies while engaging their national obligations of safeguarding and protecting the lives and properties of civilians in Nigeria.

The 2020 National Policy Development Summit was designed to identify issues surrounding socioeconomic development, infrastructural advancements, challenges of funding and lending to the real sector of the economy, as well as the absorptive capacity of the economy. In-view of this, a Member of the Panel, Prof. Jide Oladipo butressed on infrastructural revolution, stressing that it was the backbone of any visionary economy and also the pillar of Life.

Prof. Jide laid emphasis on the debt rate, stating that there has been significant increase from about 7.34trillion naira in 2015 to about 17.83trilion naira in 2018. He encouraged government and leadership to make provisional steps to maintain and repair road, as he called on more indegenous companies to be involved in developing the infrastructural sector of our nation.

According to the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, who was well represented, he noted that concerns on infrastructural improvements is a key area which the present administration is working earnestly to achieve. He highligthed the significance of infrastructural growth, with emphasis on its impact on socioeconomic progress and cited some of the projects and interventions in the rail, ports, inland waterways and road corridor projects under the ECOWAS protocol.

He also made notable references to spotlight the social contracts and obligations of government in areas of financing more social infrastructures, as it considers different types and approaches to infrastructural development, infrastructural gap, the impact on infrastructural deficit, as well as identifying bridges been built to manage the existing gap and deficits in the Nations infrastructural sector.

The even of 2020NPOD summit was interactive as Individuals, Professionals and Institutions were given opportunities to ask questions On issues discussed by Panel Members and Speakers with regards to security, military arms in custody of bandits without proper documentations and development in national economy and Infrastructural growth.

I don't know why I always feel many of these summits are a mere waste of time and then a possible show off that "ok o, our office is not idle. We are doing something too"
But in reality, nothing happens afterwards. No one revisits the report. No one even refers to it.

All they care about is the fund released to embark on the summit..

A popular example of such useless summit is the "CONFAB"
