The former Chairman of Senate Committee on Appropriation, Senator Iyiola Omisore has said that the All Progressive Congress (APC) led administration at the centre lacked the required political will to deliver the dividends of democracy to the citizenry.

Omisore said this while speaking at the 10th Roundtable organised by the Staff Club of Obafemi Awolowo University, (OAU), Ile-ife, Osun state with the theme: "Public Private Partnership: Solution to the Infrastructure Deficit in Nigeria".

He noted that the lack of political will on the part of the APC to recognise array of laudable policies on infrastructural development initiated by the previous administrations of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has retarded the nation’s infrastructural development.

"One of the problems confronting public procurement is the absence of political will on the part of this present administration to recognise the array of laudable policies of the  immediate past administration on infrastructural development.”

Omisore said viable Public Private Partnership (PPP) was the way out of the current economy challenge.

According to him, the concept completely removes bureaucratic constraints from execution of important and sensitive projects to the benefit of the populace.

"The real and simple definition of PPP is strategy to enhance efficiency in infrastructural development, to make people get value for their money.

"It is indeed a conscious way to provide infrastructure or services required by the public, as quickly as possible and in the most efficient manner", he said.
