Meet Prof Doyin Salami: New Chairman Of Nigeria's Economic Advisory Council by Niorte: 8:24pm On Sep 16, 2019
Just a little research will do. There was a thread I was reading where some people felt the Chairmanship position of the Economic Advisory Council (EAC) which has replaced the Economic Management Team should have gone to Prof. Charles Soludo while they downplayed the experience of the person (Prof Doyin Salami) they knew little about.

Please read below a brief profile of Prof. Doyin Salami the new chairman of Nigeria's Economic Advisory Council.

Dr Doyin Salami is a senior lecturer at Lagos Business School where he leads sessions in the economic environment of business and has also served as director of programmes for five years until January 2005.

Dr Salami is a doctoral degree graduate of Queen Mary College, University of London. His research interests include issues in corporate long-term financial management; macroeconomic policy; corporate competitiveness and risk management; and characteristics of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

He is a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Central Bank of Nigeria and had been a member of the Federal Government’s Economic Management Team.
Also, he is also an executive director of the UK-based African Business Research Ltd.

In addition to teaching, Dr Doyin consults for multiple organisation. His consulting activities have included assignments for the Department for International Development (DFID), World Bank, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Beyond multilateral organisations, he also works as a consultant for corporations. Presently, he is retained as a consultant by British American Tobacco (BAT), and BGL Securities Ltd. Other companies for which he has undertaken consulting assignments include Coca-Cola Nigeria and Equatorial Africa (CCNEAL), Kakawa Discount House.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (born 13 June 1954) is an economist and international development expert. She sits on the Boards of Standard Chartered Bank, Twitter, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), and the African Risk Capacity (ARC).

Previously, Okonjo-Iweala spent a 25-year career at the World Bank as a development economist, rising through the ranks to the No. 2 position of Managing Director, Operations (2007-2011). She also served two terms as Finance Minister of Nigeria (2003-2006, 2011-2015) under the leadership of President Olusegun Obasanjo and President Goodluck Jonathan respectively

Education and personal life
Okonjo-Iweala was born in Ogwashi-Ukwu, Delta State, Nigeria where her father Professor Chukwuka Okonjo is the Eze (King) from the Obahai Royal Family of Ogwashi-Ukwu.

Okonjo-Iweala was educated at Queen's School, Enugu, St. Anne's School, Molete, Ibadan, and the International School Ibadan. She arrived in the US in 1973 as a teenager to study at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude with an AB in Economics in 1976. In 1981, she earned her Ph.D in regional economics and development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a thesis titled Credit policy, rural financial markets, and Nigeria's agricultural development.[1] She received an International Fellowship from the American Association of University Women (AAUW), that supported her doctoral studies.[2]

She is married to Dr. Ikemba Iweala, a neurosurgeon. They have four children[3] - one daughter, Onyinye Iweala (AB, MD, PhD, Harvard) and three sons, Uzodinma Iweala (AB, Harvard, MD, Columbia),[4] Okechukwu Iweala (AB, Harvard) and Uchechi Iweala (AB, MD, MBA, Harvard).

Career

Okonjo-Iweala spent a 25-year career at the World Bank in Washington DC as a development economist, rising to the No. 2 position of Managing Director. As Managing Director, she had oversight responsibility for the World Bank’s $81 billion operational portfolio in Africa, South Asia, Europe and Central Asia. Okonjo-Iweala spearheaded several World Bank initiatives to assist low-income countries during the 2008 – 2009, food crises and later during the financial crisis. In 2010, she was Chair of the IDA replenishment, the World Bank’s successful drive to raise $49.3 billion in grants and low interest credit for the poorest countries in the world.[5] During her time at the World Bank, she was also a member of the Commission on Effective Development Cooperation with Africa, which was set up by the Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen of Denmark and held meetings between April and October 2008.[6]

Okonjo-Iweala served twice as Nigeria’s Finance Minister and also as Minister of Foreign Affairs. She was the first female to hold both positions. During her first term as Minister of Finance under president Obasanjo’s Administration, she spearheaded negotiations with the Paris Club of Creditors that led to the wiping out of US$30 billion of Nigeria’s debt, including the outright cancellation of US$18 billion.[7] In 2003 she led efforts to improve Nigeria’s macroeconomic management including the implementation of an oil-price based fiscal rule where revenues accruing above a reference benchmark oil price were saved in a special account, “The Excess Crude Account” which helped to reduce macroeconomic volatility.[8]

She also introduced the practice of publishing each state's monthly financial allocation, from the Federal Government of Nigeria in the newspapers. This action went a long way in increasing transparency in governance.[9] With the support of the World Bank and the IMF to the Federal Government of Nigeria, she helped build an electronic financial management platform-the Government Integrated Financial Management and Information System (GIFMIS), including the Treasury Single Account (TSA) and the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), helping to curtail corruption in the process. As at 31 December 2014, the IPPIS platform had eliminated 62,893 ghost workers from the system and saved the Nigen government about $1.25 billion in the process.[10]

Okonjo-Iweala was also instrumental in helping Nigeria obtain its first ever sovereign credit rating (of BB minus) from Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor's in 2006.[2]

Following her first term as Minister of Finance, she returned to the World Bank as a Managing Director in December 2007.

In 2011, Okonjo-Iweala was re-appointed as Minister of Finance in Nigeria with the expanded portfolio of the Coordinating Minister for the Economy by President Goodluck Jonathan. Her legacy includes strengthening Nigeria’s public financial systems and stimulating the housing sector with the establishment of the Nigerian Mortgage Refinance Corporation (NMRC).[11] She also empowered Nigeria’s women and youth with the Growing Girls and Women in Nigeria Programme (GWIN); a gender responsive budgeting system,[12] and the highly acclaimed Youth Enterprise with Innovation programme (YouWIN); to support entrepreneurs, that created thousands of jobs.[13]

This program has been evaluated by the World Bank as one of the most effective programmes of its kind globally. Under her leadership, the National Bureau of Statistics carried out a re-basing exercise of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP),; the first in 24 years, which saw Nigeria emerge as the largest economy in Africa.[14] She took a lot of heat for the fuel subsidy removal policy by the Nigerian government, which led to protests in January 2012.[15] In May 2016, the new Nigerian administration eventually removed the fuel subsidy after it became apparent that it was unsustainable and inefficient.[16]

In September 2015, she joined Lazard as a senior advisor[17] and in January 2016 she was appointed Chair of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI).[16] As at 2019, Gavi has immunized 700 million children globally and saved 10 million lives[18]

She is co-chair of the Global Commission for the Economy and Climate, with Nicholas Stern and Paul Polman.[19] In July 2017, she became an independent non-executive director at Standard Chartered PLC. 2017[20]

Charles Chukwuma Soludo, CFR (born 28 July 1960) is a Nigerian economics professor and a former Governor and chairman of the board of directors of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). Chukwuma was named Governor on 29 May 2004.[1] Charles is also a member of the British Department for International Development's International Advisory Group.
Career
Academia
Prof Soludo has been visiting scholar at the International Monetary Fund, the University of Cambridge, the Brookings Institution, the University of Warwick and the University of Oxford and a visiting professor at Swarthmore College (USA). Chukwuma has also worked as a consultant for a number of international organisations, including The World Bank, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and the United Nations Development Programme.[2][3][4]

Soludo is a core professional in the business of macroeconomics. Charles obtained his three degrees and then professorship at the University of Nigeria in Nsukka, Enugu State. Soludo graduated with a First Class Honors degree in 1984, an MSc Economics in 1987, and a PhD in 1989, winning prizes for the best student at all three levels.[4][5]

Chukwuma has been trained and involved in research, teaching and auditing in such disciplines as the multi-country macro econometric modelling, techniques of computable general equilibrium modelling, survey methodology and panel data econometrics, among others. Soludo studied and taught these courses at many Universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and Warwick. Charles has co-authored, co-edited and authored about ten books on this subject matter.[5]

In 1998 Soludo was appointed to the position of professor of economics at the University of Nigeria; the next year he became a visiting professor at Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, US.

Government
Soludo joined the federal government in 2003. Prior to his May 2004 appointment to the bank chairmanship, he held the positions of Chief Economic Adviser to former President Obasanjo and Chief Executive of the National Planning Commission of Nigeria. In January 2008, in a speech to the Nigerian Economic Society, he predicted consolidation in the private banking industry, saying "By the end of 2008, there'll be fewer banks than there are today. The restructuring of the banking industry has been attracting funds from local and foreign investors, which have increased banks' ability to lend to customers".[6] Chukwuma hopes to see Nigeria become Africa's financial hub,[7] and considers microfinance important to the federal government's economic policies.[8]

Politics
In September 2009, Soludo announced his aspiration for the seat of the Governor of Anambra state, in the south-eastern Nigeria state's election of 9 February 2010.[citation needed]

On 9 October 2009, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) chose Professor Soludo as their consensus candidate for the position from a field of 47 candidates, after repeated attempts to hold elective primaries were stalled by court injunctions.[citation needed] However, his nomination was contested by 23 of the 47 aspirants, citing lack of transparency in the process.[citation needed]

After this initial rancour, 36 out of the 47 candidates, and several top shots[who?] of the PDP, affirmed their support for Soludo on Wednesday 14 October 2009.[citation needed] However, Soludo went on to lose the election to Peter Obi in an election which was largely considered free and fair according to major election observers.[citation needed] However, with the perceived solid performance of Soludo as the CBN Governor he remains a respected economic policy authority in Nigeria. Political commentators in urging an issue based election campaign in the coming 2011 election has called on aspirants to work with respected economists like Soludo towards an acceptable Economic Plan.[9]

On 17 July 2013, Soludo resigned from the People's Democratic Party (PDP) after a letter to the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur. He later joined the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in preparation for the November 2013 governorship race in Anambra state.

Soludo is a member of the advisory council. He can offer whatever advice he has through his membership of the council. He doesn’t have to be the chairman to be effective. The person who is the chairman is also competent enough to lead to council. In fact, all members of the council are qualified to chair the council. So, let’s leave this silly argument of who is more qualified to be chairman and concentrate on monitoring the activities of the council to ensure they deliver quality advice that can stimulate our economy to the president.

What point are you trying to make by posting the profiles of Okonjo Iweala and Charles Soludo? Is it by force to serve as the chairman of a presidential advisory council?

Soludo should be grateful he was even appointed as a member of a high powered economic council that will be advising and interfacing with the president. If he cannot function as a member of the council, he should decline the appointment and the president will get a better and more patriotic person to replace him. Nobody owes him anything.

If I were Soludo, I will turn down this appointment. The guys in that council are intellectual and professional Lilliputians when compared with Soludo.

Soludo has to realise that the strength of such a council depends heavily on the abilities of the chairman, and Soludo is lightyears ahead of this unknown chairperson, and if the chairperson bungles this assignment, the Lagos-Ibadan media and the presidency will do their best to heap the failure on Soludo, with the sole aim of tarnishing his professional image.
The committee is also to the sole benefit of the chairman, vice and secretary as they will start boasting after this assignment that they led a committee that Soludo was just a mere member of. It is just for their CVs.
Let this government run the economy with just northern and SW technocrats. I even wonder why the federal minister of finance is not a part of this committee. A bunch of incompetent morons

They attempted to do the same to Okonjo-Iweala, but the chic was too bright for them

Because Buhari contested for president and won. If you also want to be president, join a political party and contest the next election. If you win, you can then appoint Soludo as the chairman of your economic advisory council.

This man looks smart but the problem with being an adviser for Buhari is that when you recommend something Buhari will not even look at it but instead take economic advise from his uncle during a their daily kunu drinking fetish

The chairmanship position shld have gone to Prof Charles soludo... I wonder why things to go straight in Nigeria...
While this guy was a director at CBN , Prof. Soludo has already retire as the chairman of CBN...
This lopsidedness in hierarchy position may even affect the outcome of the entire results.... Because why shld I serve under my subordinate?

I wish them well
Because as you have said, he has retired.

Have you heard of the word ex-officio?

That someone was the head of an organisation at one time does not mean he is better than everyone under him nor will he always be their leader in every endeavour.

You first me graduate from school no mean say you go be my boss at workplace.

Put yourself in soludo's shoe... You use to be my boss sometime ago and some years down the line , a committee was set up to look into financial situation of the country , just because I'm favour by the overall boss, he now make me your boss, pls how will you feel?

I can tell you for free, there's nothing like this in legal practition... Except the person is a federal minister...
Anyway, what can we do than just to pray that they will lasting solutions to all the teething issue in our finance sector... Even the present finance minister is another question mark. God bless Nigeria.

Soludo is a member of the advisory council. He can offer whatever advice he has through his membership of the council. He doesn’t have to be the chairman to be effective. The person who is the chairman is also competent enough to lead to council. In fact, all members of the council are qualified to chair the council. So, let’s leave this silly argument of who is more qualified to be chairman and concentrate on monitoring the activities of the council to ensure they deliver quality advice that can stimulate our economy to the president.

He does not even have to be a member to give advice.

If I were Soludo, I will turn down this appointment. The guys in that council are intellectual and professional Lilliputians when compared with Soludo.

Soludo has to realise that the strength of such a council depends heavily on the abilities of the chairman, and Soludo is lightyears ahead of this unknown chairperson, and if the chairperson bungles this assignment, the Lagos-Ibadan media and the presidency will do their best to heap the failure on Soludo, with the sole aim of tarnishing his professional image.
The committee is also to the sole benefit of the chairman, vice and secretary as they will start boasting after this assignment that they led a committee that Soludo was just a mere member of. It is just for their CVs.
Let this government run the economy with just northern and SW technocrats. I even wonder why the federal minister of finance is not a part of this committee. A bunch of incompetent morons

They attempted to do the same to Okonjo-Iweala, but the chic was too bright for them

Let me take you on if you're still there.

How are they all intellectually inferior to Soludo? Yes, Soludo is bright, but two people also stand out in that list. Iyabo Masha is not unknown and Doyin Salami is also not unknown. To be honest with you, as an economist like most of these people, I do not see how these people are inferior to Soludo, at least when we talk about the field of economics.

However, if you say that Soludo has been tested on Nigeria's matters and is senior to these people as far as leadership in Nigeria is concerned, then you will have a point...But note, this does not mean these people are inferior. It means they have not been given same opportunity as Soludo.

Soludo is bright, at least as far as ratings of Nigerian economists is concerned. I wish him all the best.

I hail the civility in your message.

Getting back to the point, do you know what it takes to constantly be ahead of your class, IN IGBOLAND OF ALL PLACES? I know I am not exaggerating when I claim that Igbos will definitely be one of the 3 educationally brightest groups in the whole world. And for someone to be constantly ahead of his UNN peers and winning awards for that, is an achievement not to trifle with.

I studied in Igboland and I also got my bachelors degree from Queen Mary and Westerfield college, University of London, the same place Prof. Salami went to, and I can tell you categorically that it was much harder for me to beat my fellow Igbos educationally, than it was, to beat the normal European in the UK.

I don't even rate Soludo's central bank experience or his romance with Cambridge university and his stint with the United Nations. What I really rate, is his educational prowess while at UNN. That is why I know for certain, that the other guys in that committee, are by far, his intellectual inferiors.

Remember this was exactly the same propaganda this administration tried to use to belittle Okonjo-Iweala, when they presented Kemi Adeosun as somewhat of the saviour of Nigeria's economy. We all know what became of her, while Okonjo-Iweala keeps soaring.

I believe all the people in that committee, including the federal government are trying to tap Soludo's genius and attach the expected successes to their CVs as theirs. Nothing more nothing less. Salami and the rest probably became chairman and all the other positions, because they know Tinubu or Buhari personally, and because they came from the same ethnic groups as the two individuals. It's quite clear. Kemi Adeosun comes to mind
