A Tweet-Critique of APC’s Road Map document

By 

Noel A. Ihebuzor

I attempted a tweet-critique of the APC draft road map. Please find below. The Tweets are best read from bottom up! Since this is done as a learning exercise, I gladly welcome challenges to and critiques of my critique.

 Thanks, Noel

 

The health section has no mention whatsoever of MMR & I/CMR, key scourges in our health delivery system – this is a major gap! Close it!

Pls read and challenge my tweets on the draft APC road map. @feathersproject @FailedRift @CuteDollars @Rexdon05 @UlyssesRex @nzesylva

A truly exceptional #Nigerian and worthy Twitter fellow and follow – @naitwt – Retweeted by Noel Ihebuzor

State Police Forces? where? why? and How? Do the dangers not outweigh any advantages?

Bullet 3 under social welfare – recognize improvements as a result of developments in e-banking.

Section on social welfare needs more rigor. Reads like something hastily slapped together.

A bullet on the role of PHC and preventive strategies would have improved the worth of this section!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  9h

Document is silent on the roles of CHEWs and VHWs in effective delivery of medical services. Why?

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  9h

Double physicians? How many years does it take to produce one doctor? in what year can this doubling be attained? woolly!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  9h

Double the number of physicians and health care professionals! Hian! Time frame? what strategies? – external sourcing + internal training?

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  9h

Health care – bullet 3 – more appropriate incentives and structures would be needed!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Agriculture – for credibility, show how what is proposed is new and adds value!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Nothing on the geographical spread and mobility of teachers? This is a sine qua non for a more equitable educational development!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Stipends to education graduates prior to their employment as teachers? For real? In all states? at all levels? This is fuzzy!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

The section on education is silent on the key issue of spatial disparities in educational access, retention, completion & quality! Why?

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Bullet 7 – reads well. Eye catching and voter pleasing but the devil is in the detail.

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Corruption – bullets 1-4 – nothing to add. Charity begins at home and the brooms should start sweeping from within!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Last bullet on women – reads more like a last minute token gesture to “gender “!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Technology transfer and Appropriate Technology for job creation – great idea!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

PW schemes to re-stake the economy? Moderate dis noble impulse with a recognition of the need for rational PPP & Private sector led growth!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Embark on TVE retraining & skills acquisition? This is already on-going. Recognize current efforts & build on these. No need for tabula rasa

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

@ajjolley the justifications are the weakest – sch meals are justified by reference to effects on short term hunger, attention &retention

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Providing matching funds for business – woolly, needs sharpening!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

School meals for all primary school pupils – great idea but keep an eye on costs, perverse incentives and unplanned effects.

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

“Allowee” for unemployed NYSC graduates for another 12 months amounts to extending duration of NYSC effectively to 24 months!

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Establishing Tech/industrial estates to attract SSEs. Time frame? How many?

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

How does a N5,000 CCT to the 25 million poorest promote job empowerment? What is the unit of analysis for targeting? Good to specify !

Noel Ihebuzor ‏@naitwt  10h

Create 20,000 jobs per state immediately for sec school cert & who participate in TVE? Be specific on time frame. Beneficiaries are fuzzy!

A woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth every 2 mins, 99% in developing world. It’s time to act #transformherfuture http://twitpic.com/dxwa30
