Statistical Conference: Association Appeals To ASUU To Waive Ban

The Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA) has appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to waive its ban on the international statistical conference slated to hold in University of Lagos (UNILAG), from Sept. 4th to 8th.

The appeal is contained a letter written to the National Strike Monitoring Committee through the UNILAG Chapter of the union.

A copy of the letter was made available on Sunday in Abuja.

In a letter signed by Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, the Chairman, National Organising Committee of the conference, the association stated that the conference was fixed a year ago after its 2016 conference.

The letter was a response to the letter written by Dr Odukoya Laja, ASUU Chairman, UNILAG chapter, that due to the on-going ASUU strike, the conference would not hold in the campus as scheduled.

Olubusoye said the appeal to ASUU became expedient since the conference was fixed before the strike commenced and for economic as well as academic reasons.

“ The idea of an international statistical conference was a major attempt by the Governing Council of NSA to raise the consciousness of our political leaders to the critical role of using data for planning.

“This is clearly evident from the consistent shortfall in allocation to universities over the years, which is partly responsible for the current ASUU strike.

“The conference had long been planned and given wide publicity thereby making expected number of participants to be in thousands from within Nigeria and abroad.

“No other befitting venue with standard facilities and academic serenity outside UNILAG Main Auditorium can accommodate the vast number of participants and dignitaries being expected,’’ Olubusoye said.

He added that ASUU should allow the conference hold in UNILAG because of international participants who had purchased their tickets through the funding support from local and international organisations.

The chairman explained that such funding might be denied in future if this conference failed to deliver the minimum international standard.

He said that huge cost running into millions of Naira had been committed to the preparation of the conference.

He listed some of the monies already expended on the confab to include payment for the Main Auditorium, Conference facilities and hotel accommodation, adding that relocating the venue now would be a great calamity.

Olubusoye said: “as a long standing financial member of ASUU with full commitment and support to the on-going struggle, this appeal cannot be intended to undermine the laudable cause of the strike.

“Rather, the conference has the potential of helping to resolve part of the problem that led to the strike in a sustainable manner.

“It can help to resolve it by using the platform provided by the conference to make advocacy for knowledge driven economy and evidence-based policy making.’’

He however, informed the participants that alternative arrangement had been made while waiting for favourable response from ASUU.

Olubusoye, who is also the 2nd Vice President of NSA, said that arrangement had been made to hold the pre-conference workshop scheduled for Sept. 4th to 5th at the Multipurpose Hall of the Federal College of Education (FCE), Akoka, Lagos.

He said that the main conference would also hold at FCE, which is about three minutes walking distance from UNILAG.

According to him, FCE has granted the association the privilege to accommodate interested participants on its campus, adding that all other arrangements remained as planned in the programme.

The theme of the conference is “Positioning National Statistical System for Data Revolution and Inclusive Development.’’

Nigeria has best statisticians in the world – official

An official of the Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA), Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, says Nigeria has one of the best crops of highly respected statisticians in the world.

Olubusoye, the 2nd Vice President of NSA, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

The official said that the association would be showcasing some of its best brains at the NSA forthcoming international conference.

The conference, slated from Sept. 6th to 8th at the University of Lagos, will focus on the theme “Positioning National Statistical System for Data Revolution and Inclusive Development”.

He said statisticians from other countries would be learning from their counterparts in the country at the conference.

“We have so much to learn from them but in terms of training, they can also learn from us.

“We have one of the best crops of highly respected statisticians in the world.

“We have some of them in the country and some abroad; some of them will be giving lectures in their areas of specialisation at the conference.

“For instance, University of Ibadan (UI) is one of the special training centres on statistics in Africa.

“We have only three institutions on the continent designated as special training centres and one of them is UI,’’ the official said.

The official said that the association would also be learning from some statistical associations, institutions and bodies in Africa and abroad.

“We need to learn from others on how they support their statistical associations to have a vibrant way of producing official statistics.

“We need to learn the way they promote statistical education, the way they encourage policy makers to use quality statistics for evidence-based decision rather than personal opinion, political interest and other mundane considerations.’’

He said that the Lagos State Government, through its Bureau of Statistics, would partner with NSA, saying the conference would remain indelible in the history of the country and the association.

He said that the association chose to partner with Lagos State because it operated a knowledge-based economy.

“It is one of the states that is run with evidence-based policies process. They have high regard for data and that is why things seem to be getting better in Lagos.

“ We are collaborating with the state and encouraging it to showcase how they have been using data to make life meaningful and better for the people of Lagos state,’’ the official said.

Olubusoye said that the association had already inaugurated the Young Statisticians of Nigeria (YSNaija) as a wing of the association.

YSNaija consists of those studying statistics at undergraduate, Masters to Post-doctoral levels and those who graduated in the last five years or more working in statistics-related areas.

“ We have been trying to mobilise the early career statisticians to form a very formidable group that can also contribute to nation’s building.

“ We know that in terms of statistical development, we are still growing, so for us to have a very promising future, the earlier career statisticians have a role to play.

“We are trying to link them up with their counterparts in other countries such as statisticians in South Africa and the International Statistical institute,’’ he said.

According to him, statistics is a discipline that globally every age group, from young to adult, is considered to be critical unit and it usually mobilises the citizenries.

“The groups are coordinated not only by UN, they are also mobilised at the continental level. They are mobilised at the National level, that is what we are already doing now.’’

Accurate data crucial for inclusive development, growth – LASG

The Lagos State Government on Tuesday underscored the importance of accurate data to adequate planning which is necessary to bring about inclusive development and growth in all sections and sectors. Speaking while receiving a delegation from the Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA) on behalf of the State Government on a courtesy visit, Commissioner for Establishment, Training and Pension, Dr. Akintola Benson said adequate data remains critical to bringing about efficient planning and execution of policies and programmes that would help to enhance quality of life of the people.

The delegation led by NSA Second Vice President, Dr Olusanya Olubusoye and former Statistician General of the Federation, Chief Oladejo Ajayi had scheduled to visit to intimate the State Government about the forthcoming international conference of the association to be held in Lagos from September 6 to 8, 2017. The conference, which is to be attended by statisticians from within and outside the country, is with the theme: “Positioning National Statistical Systems For Data Revolution And Inclusive Development.” Benson, who received members of the NSA delegation alongside the Special Adviser to the Governor on Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives, Hon Benjamin Olabinjo; Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget, Mr Abayomi Kadri; and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Mr Tunde Ogunleye, commended the association for putting the conference together, saying that aside Lagos State, all other States of the federation and the Federal Government would benefit tremendously from topics lined up for discussion. He said: “In this kind of data gathering conference, Lagos State and indeed all the States of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja will benefit tremendously. First of all, the conference will give us all the data that we need to plan. You will agree with me that without data, we cannot do anything. If we have accurate data, it will help all the 36 States and the Federal Government to plan. “For instance, today, nobody can actually ascertain the exact population of Nigeria. Some people will say we are 180 million, some will say we are 150 million, some will say we are 250 million. The question is what is the exact figure of our population? In essence, this conference will give us insight on how to get the accurate data that will help us to plan properly. “Though effective data tools, each of the State Government in Nigeria including the Federal Government will be able to know the methodologies, the action or the way and manner to go about their planning and from there, it will have a major positive impact on our people be it in the education sector, economy, health and so on. I believe this kind of conference will not only help the Lagos State Government, it will help other States and the entire diaspora.” While pledging to convey the message of the delegation to the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode, Benson assured that the State Government would partner with the NSA and support the conference to ensure its huge success. According to Benson, “In the last 25 months, our Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode who is a thinker and a doer, has done a lot in all sectors and sections of the State. He has asked that a powerful delegation of State officials should receive the NSA team and we assure you of our support.” Earlier in his opening remarks, Olubusoye, who is the Chairman of the National Organising Committee of the conference, said the courtesy visit was basically to officially introduce the officials of the NSA and the members of the Organizing Committee, as well as to present the details of the conference to the State Government. He said the meeting was also to provide the State Government with information about the Nigerian statistical community and dignitaries expected to attend the conference from within and outside the country. Besides, Olubusoye thanked the State Government for supporting the conference, saying that in the 41 years history the association, this would be the first time a State Government would be doing such.

2017 budget: Association advises FG to come up with independent monitors, assessors - The Nation Nigeria http://thenationonlineng.net/2017-budget-association-advises-fg-to-come-up-with-independent-monitors-assessors/

Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, 2nd Vice President, Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA) has advised the Federal Government to constitute a group of independent monitors and assessors to monitor implementation of the 2017 budget.

Olubusoye gave the advice while sharing his views on some burning national issues in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Abuja.

He said that the government should come up with a group, consisting of experts from the relevant professional associations including NSA.

“An objective and independent budget monitoring group will promote transparency and provide the needed checks and balances in the budget implementation.’’

The official, however, commended the Federal Government for the signing of 2017 Appropriation Budget into law, adding that it was a big relief for Nigerians.

Olubusoye also urged the government to begin implementation of the budget in earnest in order to bring succour to the citizens.

“The most important thing is to hit the ground running as far as implementation is concerned.

“If the thrust of the budget will be achieved, then there must be constant monitoring, continuous evaluation and periodic reporting of progress made, challenges encountered and outstanding tasks,’’ he emphasised.

In addition, he urged the government to create jobs for unemployed Nigerians as it would go a long way in addressing the high level of unemployment in the country.

The latest unemployment reports released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed that the country’s unemployment rate rose from 13.9 per cent in the third quarter to 14.2 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2016.
“The production of labour market statistics by NBS is a major positive development in Nigeria.

“The increase from 13.3 per cent to 14.2 per cent reported in the unemployment rate could easily be attributed to the fact that the unemployed population is increasing.

“It means the unemployed population (those within the working age population willing, able and actively looking for work but without work) is increasing faster than the labour force population.

“The only way to halt this phenomenon is to create more jobs for those who are within the working age population that are willing, able and actively looking for work.’’

The official said that the challenge before NBS was to put emphasis on the production of timely statistics on job creation and for the government to create enabling environment for job creation to thrive.

“How many jobs are created and how many are entering the labour force population monthly?

“Providing answer to these questions is the starting point to reducing unemployment rate in Nigeria,’’ he said.

Statistician canvasses evaluation mechanism in FG’s economic recovery plan

http://thenationonlineng.net/statistician-canvasses-evaluation-mechanism-in-fgs-economic-recovery-plan/

A statistician, Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, has advised the Federal Government to accompany the just inaugurated Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) with basic monitoring and evaluation kits.
Olubusoye, the second Vice-President, Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA), gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday.

The ERGP’s projected that Nigeria will make significant progress to achieve structural economic change with a more diversified and inclusive economy in five key areas by 2020.

The key areas are stable macro-economic environment, agricultural transformation, food security, sufficiency in energy and improved transportation infrastructure.

He said that government should accompany the ERGP with basic monitoring and evaluation kits such as performance indicators, data collection framework and reporting schedule.

“A simple illustration to use is the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), global plans of action.

“Both of them were accompanied with achievable goals, quantifiable targets, performance indicators, data requirements and even reporting framework.

“For instance, MDGs had 21 quantifiable targets and 60 indicators for tracking progress on the agenda while the current SDGs has 17 goals and 232 performance indicators.

“So, the truth is that without practical indicators, goals remain purely aspirational and progress cannot be measured,” he said.

Similarly, the official said reliable and timely data were needed for systematic follow-up and progress reviews.

Olubusoye said that government should also look at the nature of the plan and review it.

According to him, the plan is macro-centric rather than micro-centric in nature.


“The plan emphasises more on economic aggregates, Gross Domestic Product, which hardly reflect the reality at the micro levels.

“Individual is concerned with how the plan will translate to improved quality of life, more food on the table, affordable housing, affordable and accessible health facilities.

“They are also looking at good water, safe and secured environment, quality education, basic infrastructure such as good roads, railway, among others.’’

He, however, said that it was not clear how many people the plan would cater for.

“By this, I mean the population figure used for the plan.

“Nowhere in the plan is reference made to the current population size but quick to project 289 million by year 2050.

“How realistic is the figure? Is the figure our own, or estimated, or ‘guesstimated’?

“How many people are covered in the first year of implementation? How many will be covered in the second year and up to 2020?

“What if the country is planning for more or for less people than it has now, Can such a plan be realistic?”

The official said that the fundamental question with regards to the plan was the way it differed from the previous development plans.

He said, “how is ERGP different from the previous plans such as the 1st – 4th National Development Plans, Structural Adjustment Programme, National Economic Empowerment And Development Strategy.

“The other question: Is it different in concept, scope, goals, monitoring, evaluation, performance indicators, reporting schedule etc?”

Olubusoye said that those were the important areas and gaps that the government needed to fill in the plan.

“The solution is to fill the missing gaps in the plan and the basic thing is also to use data appropriately.

“We don’t have regard for data in this country. How can you have good plan like this and you don’t have performance indicator?

“You don’t have framework for collecting data that will help you to monitor progress and yet you don’t have reporting framework. How will the government be reporting to Nigerians on progress made,’’ he said.

Statisticians Urge Osinbajo To Sign CISON Bill Into Law

The Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA) has appealed to the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to sign the Chartered Institute of Statisticians of Nigeria (CISON) Bill into law.

The 2nd Vice-President of NSA, Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, made the call in an interview with The Tide source  in Abuja yesterday.
Olubusoye said that the association would transit from NSA to CISON, once the bill received the endorsement of the president.
‘‘CISON is a professional body just like ICAN that will regulate the work that statisticians should do, so they will also declare who is a statistician before one becomes a member.

“ICAN has series of examinations they conduct for their members before they become professionals similarly CISON will have.
“The association has started a legal process to have CISON so that members can practice with recognition and legal backing.
“The bill has been passed by the National Assembly for more than two years but up till now it has not been signed by the President.
“We are hoping that it will be signed soon and the association will now transit from mere association to an award body,’’ he said.
Olubusoye said that the acting president recently signed some bills into law, adding that CISON Bill was not among them.
He said that reasons were given for those bills that were not signed and that no reason was given for not signing the CISON Bill into law.
“Signing the Bill doesn’t have any financial implication for the government; it is something that is in practice globally.
“I am a Chartered Statistician of the Royale Statistical Society, London.

“In Nigeria, we should also have rules and regulation for professional body for statisticians to be able to practice just like medical profession; you have to practice under approved regulations,” the official said.

Meanwhile, in a document on CISON obtained from the NSA Secretariat, the CISON Bill has four parts.
It stated that Part One would be the Establishment of the Chartered Institute of Statisticians of Nigeria while Part Two of CISON would be on the Registrar and the Register.

“Part Three, Professional Discipline and Part Four would be General and Miscellaneous.
“The institute will determine what standards of knowledge and skill are to be gained by persons seeking to become members of the statistics profession.’’
The document further stated that the institute would have the duties to revise those standards from time to time as circumstances might permit.
“It will secure, in accordance with this bill, the establishment and maintenance of registers of fellows, associates and registered statisticians entitled to practice as statisticians.

“The institute will also publish, from time to time, lists of those persons in the categories,’’ it stated.

Statistician Advises FG On Census

A statistician, Dr Olusanya Olubusoye, has advised the Federal Government to adopt administrative census, rather than the current decennial, to gauge the nation’s population for effective planning and development.

Olubusoye, the 2nd Vice-President, Nigerian Statistical Association (NSA), gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja.

He said that decennial census was conducted every 10 years in most countries, but that Nigeria didn’t have any regular period for the exercise.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the last census in Nigeria was conducted in 2006.

“It tells a lot about the country’s regard for the use of data for policy making, planning and development purposes.

“We should be looking at alternative ways of conducting census, considering the challenges we have had in the past, but the truth is that most countries are moving away from decennial census.

“They are moving away from paper census that we use to do, where enumerators will move from household to capture information about individuals.’’

Olubusoye said that most countries, especially in Europe, had adopted administrative census.

“They now use existing information about the citizens and information that exists in administrative records.

“You will be surprised that everybody has information in one way or the other with one agency of government or the other,’’ he said.

According to him, administrative census has cost benefit over the decennial type as it will eliminate the manual way of conducting census.

Olubusoye added that administrative census only needed to harmonise existing data, saying, “For instance, data from BVN registration, voter registration, drivers’ licence, hospital records and National ID Card.

“You don’t need physical counting; most countries depend on those database, harmonise them and remove duplications, rather than waiting for 10 years.’’

He said that the cost of conducting physical counting was enormous, and that it was the reason why the country could not afford it.

“The logistic of implementing physical counting is huge – putting security in place, putting vehicles on the roads, engaging people and so on.

“If cost is the issue, let us go back to the database that we have and harmonise them, and we will get information to do basic planning.’’
