According to him, the need for human capital development through massive investment remains the key to economic prosperity for any state or country.

”As an economist, I can tell you that no nation attains sustainable economic growth without developing the human resources necessary to drive such growth. How we develop and utilise human capital is vital to economic productivity and growth”, he said.
