Abandoned Infrastructure Projects in Nigeria

Nigeria has been struggling with several key public infrastructure projects being abandoned before completion. As part of PDIA in Action course, students at HKS - Nathalie Gazzaneo, Tendai Mvuvu, Rodrigo Perez-Tejada, Matt Weber, worked with David Wuyep, Chief Technical Advisor in the office of the Governor of Plateau State to better understand the problem and determine viable entry points for action. Together they learned the importance of teamwork, staying humble, taking incremental steps forward, and the power of dissecting problems into underlying causes while questioning assumptions.
