“When you lead a country, you have a vision, and you come up with policies that will help you attain that vision; how to communicate that vision is one of the major difficulties governments face,” he conceded.

He added that it was one of the regrets that the policies that were churned out in line with education, health and other sectors wee not properly communicated.

“It is one of the regrets I have that with the policies that we churned out in education, in the health sector and all that, we did not sell that to the people in a manner that they could understand, and, so, people could see hospitals being built but they did not understand the policy driving it – Bringing Health To Your Doorstep – which was the policy that we were carrying out.

Next time, we will improve the government communication so that people can, at every step of the way, know what the government is trying to implement,”he added.
