President of the Nigerian Institute of Management (Chartered), Dr. Sally Nkem Adukwu-Bolu-joko, has described Nigerians as knowledgeable people whose talent are being tapped by the international community but are not being appreciated by Nigerians.

She stated that what Nigerians were suffering was lack of skills to leave a legacy for others to follow like the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and the likes of Chief Nnamdi Azikwe.

Dr Adukwu-Bolajoko stated this in Ibadan, on Thursday, when she led a team of the executive and members of the NIM to pay a courtesy visit to the management of the African Newspapers of Nigeria (ANN) Plc, at the Tribune House, Ibadan.

According to her, “Nigeria is one of the countries that is well blessed but it is underutilising the  human resources because it lacked management skills.

“All  people could think of is to amass wealth that they end up mismanaging for lack of management skills,”she said.

Many have the skills but not the will to put such skill to use for the benefit of others, so they end up losing such skills, that is why Nigeria, despite all it is acquiring from oil, cannot build an oil house like our former leaders used the proceeds from Cocoa to build the Cocoa House.”

She, however, commended the management of the ANN Plc for sustaining the legacies of the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, adding that they should do everything in their capacity to ensure they understood their environment to get to the next level.

Responding, the Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief (MD/EIC), Reverend Sam Adesua, said managing human beings depended on the leadership because it was easy to measure the activities of leaders through the kind of followers they had.

Reverend Adesua stated that there was no other newspaper in Nigeria that could boast of having the experience of the Tribune titles based on its age and various challenges it had faced, saying, yet it was still waxing stronger like an old wine.

He added that it was due to this fact that the team was working in compliance with the legacies left by the founder.
