Optimise the public infrastructure governance model

The current public project selection process faces many challenges, and its application frequently distorts the original objectives.

To address these shortcomings, Nigeria should implement 4 reforms to optimise the process:

■       Making feasibility studies mandatory could immediately contribute to improving the quality of projects submitted;

■       The budget process should be restructured to ensure prompt release of funds;

■       A monitoring and evaluation system should be used to support implementation;

■       An asset management system should be created to support the monitoring and evaluation framework.
