"Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before 'kings; he shall not stand before mean men." – Proverbs 22:29
Quoting the verse on diligence holds truer for no man but Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede. Before his appointment as SSA to the President on Job creation, Afolabi designed his own academy "SkillUp" where he trained young Nigerians in technical and vocational education to fill a lacuna of skilled artisanship in Nigeria. It was this passion and dedication to creation of employment opportunities that led him to government where he became the inaugural officer in charge of the N-Power component of the President Muhammadu Buhari's National Social Investment Programme (NSIP). In the pages of Never a/IA/ter-thought, Imoukhuede narrates his journey on the path of destiny and explains the reasons for the creation of the N-Power programme, its initial hiccups and enduring successes. He shows that the transparency and efficiency of N-Power's operations can shine the light on how private sector pragmatism can impact government idealism.
