Summary: Successive Nigerian governments have over the past decade-plus launched various renewals or recovery plans aimed at boosting or reforming the economy. We have witnessed numerous plans or programmes ranging from the 7-point agenda (2007) of Umar Musa Yar’Adua administration, through the Vision 20-20 (2010), National Industrial Revolution Plan (2014) and the Nigeria Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan (2014) of the Goodluck Jonathan administration, all the way to the Muhammadu Buhari government’s Strategic Implementation Plan for the Budget for Change (2016).

Whilst these initiatives have achieved varying degrees of success, implementation across board has always been challenging.
