Nigeria Joins the Startup Fray, To Spend N458m To Hire Economic Growth Hackers

People, all the rants, strategies and discussions you are having on social media can turn out to be a money maker. The Nigerian government joins the tech world, looking for growth hackers. Yes, they need people that can hack national growth, similar to the ways startups employ managers, vice presidents, and staff with specific focus for hacking growth.

The Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved the hiring of a consultant to conduct a study that will aid the implementation of the present administration’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan.

The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udo Udoma, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of a meeting of the Council presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja

Udoma put the cost of the approved consultancy job at N458m.

He said the consultant would identify relevant stakeholders in both private and public sectors for the implementation of the ERGP.

He said the study would be conducted on agriculture, transportation, power, gas and processing, among others

I am not sure if the contract has been awarded or if they are still looking for tenders to begin the selection. Where this is still open, I hope guys organize themselves and compete. For the fact that it is made public, it means it will be transparent. And they will not likely give it to one company. They will spread the contract to at least 6 contractors, one per geopolitical zone. It is a multi-sector project which means they may look for different things.
