In a significant move to address Nigeria's global performance lag in human capital development, Vice President Kashim Shettima has taken a proactive step by approving the formation of a multi-sectoral committee. This committee is aimed at driving the goals of the Human Capital Development (HCD) program of the federal government.

The newly constituted multi-sectoral team comprises representatives from the federal and state governments, as well as donors and partners. Their primary task is to convene every two weeks to assess and review the progress made in addressing the objectives of the HCD program.

This decision came after Vice President Shettima's meeting with key stakeholders including the World Bank's Country Director for Nigeria, Shubham Chaudhuri, the Chairman of the Dangote Foundation, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, and the Founder of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, Mr. Tony Elumelu, along with the Coordinating Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Prof. Ali Pate, among others at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The Vice President emphasized the critical link between Nigeria's future and human capital development, underscoring the importance of concerted efforts to address the existing challenges. This move signifies a significant step towards enhancing Nigeria's human capital and fostering sustainable development in the country.
