Diamond Bank

Dozie, who is the founder of the defunct Diamond Bank and president of Pan-Atlantic University, had this to say in his keynote speech at the ongoing National Economic Summit in Abuja.

Nigeria We Need

The title of his article was “The Nigeria We Need”.

Nigerian News Agency

The Nigerian News Agency reports that the annual two-day summit, hosted by the Economic Summit Group (NESG), is themed “Shared Prosperity: 2023 and Beyond.”

According to Dozie, democratically established, rule-based systems of government are more durable than other forms of government.

Federal Government

He called on the Federal Government to “depersonalize” the playing field of the institutions and make it attractive to local and foreign investors.

“Ours is an economy that badly needs a positive regulatory environment that is driven by the private sector and improves business,” he said.

He called for the deployment of more inclusive and development-enabling institutions instead of “economic extractives.”

Extractive Economic Institutions

He said: “While inclusive institutions grant equal rights and allow equal opportunity, Extractive Economic Institutions (EEI) allow the elite to rule, exploit and extract wealth from those who are not in the elite.

“In these circumstances, the IAS hinder national cohesion and development, with the consequent debilitating effect on the cohesion and development of society,” he said.

Land Use Act

He called for a comprehensive review of the Land Use Act, which he described as the “most debilitating extractive economic institution” that has allowed powerful Nigerians to allocate private and communal land to each other.

“In the process, citizens are denied their heritage, with the consequent negative impact on agricultural community farmers, poverty alleviation and wealth creation.

Land Use Law

“In this circumstance, after more than four decades of unintended negative consequences, the time has come for a comprehensive review and amendment of the Land Use Law,” he said.

Dozie said that Nigerian politics are crying out for solutions to the insecurity that plagues the country.

According to him, as a fundamental principle of nationality, regardless of the cost, we must decisively confront threats to national security in an intelligent, transparent, responsible and coordinated manner.

He also called on the federal government and Nigerian citizens to ensure that the upcoming 2023 elections are free, fair and peaceful.

“While economic and social infrastructure play an important role in crystallizing development, freedom of choice and the associated ‘soft issues’ are inalienable rights and therefore fundamental to human development and sustainability.

“The Nigeria we need is one that is imagined, negotiated and agreed upon by parents.

“A secular, federal, democratic Nigerian nation is a state where relevant groups mutually agree to the rules of engagement on an equal footing, where ethnic groups may differ, but respect each other and take advantage of the good in each other,” he said.
