This therefore, calls for the need to adequately develop the human resources and then utilize human resources for the development of the Nigerian economy.

He stressed that, of all factors contributing to the growth and development of nation, the human resource is unquestionably the most crucial. This implied that we might have money. Highly sophisticated machine, high quality material and land with the most precious materials on it.
