The National Competitiveness Council of Nigeria (NCCN) has launched Nigeria’s first national competitiveness report with plans to drive the viability of states and spur viable policies for sustainable national prosperity.

Speaking on the theme “Competitiveness: The viable path to job inclusive growth,” NCCN Chief Executive Officer, Chika Mordi, explained that the move would help spur growth-friendly policies as Nigeria’s desire to attain productive and viable economy. According to the NCCN, the index to be launched evaluates the competitiveness of Nigeria’s 36 states and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) through metrics that examine growth, development and productivity potential.

Explaining the findings of the new report to be released by his council, Mordi said: “There were some states where you saw a clear path when it comes to education and skills. What we hope is that the policy and interventions that have worked will be transferred from the states where they have worked to those that haven’t done it yet.”

The NCCN report, which was compiled over the last 20 months with support from the Ford and Tony Elumelu foundations and the World Bank among others, looked into how economically competitive states in Nigeria are.
