Dr. Oyeyemi Kale, the Statistician-General of the Federation, has shown Nigeria the meaning of excellence in the last ten years during his tenure at the National Bureau of Statistics.
Before Dr. Yemi Kale became the Statistician-General of the Federation, the National Bureau of Statistics produced three main annual reports: GDP, Inflation, and Unemployment. The number of yearly reports changed as 22 new reports were added within the first five years of his tenure, which ended in 2016.
Due to his excellent performance, Dr Yemi Kale was reappointed in 2016, and the reappointment made him the first chief executive in the agency’s history to serve two terms as statistician general of the federation. By the second term, the number of reports had been expanded to 52 reports.
Dr. Yemi Kale has displayed an exemplary level of excellence and will be celebrated by Data Science Nigeria and Proshare on Wednesday, 29 September 2021. Leading players in the Nigerian data, analytics, financial reporting, marketing/business research, statistical research, and economic modeling communities will gather for a 90-minute get together to celebrate, showcase and reflect on Dr. Kale’s contribution to the country.
