The fast pace of change and national development in countries across the world, especially in the past three decades, has been driven by paradigm transitions towards thinking globally and acting locally.
Successful national growth and development have been accomplished under inherently deft, visionary and people-oriented national policies and strategies.
Although Nigeria is a developing country, there are still many areas of concern that needs development.
At it’s inaugural meeting in Abuja, the Directorate in the APC pledged to help the campaign focus on it’s message especially contemporary challenges facing Nigerians around economy, security and other key issues.
The APC Directorate is responsible for focusing on delivering the renewed Hope manifesto of the presidential candidate.
The policy, research and strategy Directorate serves as the reservoir of knowledge that will drive the campaign manifesto to reality.
The Directorate notes that the country is in a watershed moment where global and local factors around development are changing and evolving at a fast pace.
Political parties are often forced to focus on short-term crises to the disadvantage of the medium- and long-term development of their strategies.
The APC Directorate will be a tool that will help the party campaign address different issues by focusing on the importance of strategic planning as a means for strengthening their capacity to engage in organisational learning and respond to changing circumstances.
