Acting President Inonge Wina has implored higher learning institutions in the country to supplement government’s development agenda through the provision of quality human capital.
Mrs. Wina said human capital development is cardinal in accelerating the country’s national economic development as it contributes significantly to increased productivity.
She further urged higher learning institutions to adopt innovative curriculum that will boost productivity in key economic sectors such as construction, energy, information technology, mining and many others.
Mrs. Wina was speaking at the 16th graduation ceremony of the National Institute of Public Administration (NIPA) held under the theme” Innovation in Training, Research and Consultancy beyond the Golden Jubilee”.
A total of 2,388 students graduated in 34 programmes representing 7.3 percent increase from last year’s graduates. And Mrs. Wina praised NIPA for its continued efforts of spearheading and facilitating innovative human resource development for both the public and private sector in the country.
And NIPA Governing Council Chairperson Mwindaace Siamwiza said his institution has embarked on a partnership programme with other higher learning institutions in the country aimed at interfacing its mandate.
Prof. Siamwiza said this is in order for the institution to adapt quickly to market forces and reposition itself to meet the country’s human resource development needs.
