Tinubu formed an economic advisory committee with Dangote, Otedola, Elumelu, Chukwuma (Innoson), Rabiu (BUA), and others.

The tripartite committee comprised of 17 members from both the Federal government, sub-nationals and private sector. 

President Tinubu, with governors and business figures in Abuja, vowed to explore all strategies to tackle Nigeria’s socio-economic challenges.

What the President is Saying 

According to the President, the federal government is ready to collaborate closely with all stakeholders to identify enduring solutions to the country’s current situation. 

  • ”Let’s look at what we’re doing right and what we’re doing wrong to bring life back to the economy. Like I said, many times, the people of this country are only the people who we have to please. 
  • ”We are very much concerned from students to mothers and fathers, farmers, the traders and realising that everyone of us will have to fetch water from the same well.  
  • ”We’re looking for additional efforts that might help the downtrodden Nigerians and we will provide that hope and reassurance that economic recovery is on its way.  
  • ”We are not saying that we have all the answers. But we will not be blamed for not trying. 
  • ”We assure Nigerians that we will do our best to get our marshal plans in place and fashion out the best economic future for this country,” he said.
