Buhari And Economic Advisory Council In Close Door Meeting by Enzorazor: 1:24pm On Oct 09
Members of the economic advisory council are currently in a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja.

This meeting is the first since the inauguration of the advisory council.

President Buhari last month replacedthe Economic Management Team, headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, with the Economic Advisory Council which is mandated to report directly to him.

The eight-man economic advisory council is headed by Professor Doyin Salami with Dr Mohammed Sagagi as vice chairman while the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Development Policy, Dr Mohammed Salisu, is the secretary.

Appointed as members of the council is the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Professor Chukwuma Soludo, and the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Financial Derivatives Company Limited, Mr Bismark Rewane.

Other members of the committee are Professor Ode Ojowu, Dr Shehu Yahaya, and Dr Iyabo Masha.

The Council will advise the President on economic policy matters, including fiscal analysis, economic growth and a range of internal and global economic issues working with the relevant cabinet members and heads of monetary and fiscal agencies.

They better give Mr President sound economic advice. The budget that was presented to the national assembly is not growth oriented

Closed doors meeting has never yielded reasonable results in Nigeria.

They would need to start engaging the general public to understand that we are passing through illegitimate pains as citizens.

Another hardship program about to be rolled out

The next advice may be "placing tax on bathroom"
Since data and cable tv seem not causing enough outcry.

ourema:

What kind of budget should they have presented going by the current and projected realities of our daily crude oil production volume and price?

Can you just give a 3 line summary of what you think will be a growth oriented budget Mr. Economist?

This gathering of some of the best eggheads Nigeria can boast of, inspires hope and belief about the future. We must give them a chance to offer their ideas.

angry We need good news...
I wonder why some guys here will be calling The President a Fool, Dumb, etc...
This is not right. Don't let your frustration or anger make you lose respect for
the elder not to talk of the President

Can you call your Father a fool if he is not doing the right thing?
If you can then I rest my case.

Whether he go do wetin them advice am?

That should be the worries now.
Because already, Nigeria is running on half tank hence the reason for all the tax the govt is introducing.

Well he doesnt have any option, he ought to do all he can to revive the economy.
These days, nations are respected by the size of their economy, no longer by the size of their military.

This is all to show that he is seriously working hard to fix the economy. Whether he listen to their advice is another thing entirely.
Re: Buhari And Economic Advisory Council In Close Door Meeting by VillageHead: 2:05pm On Oct 09
Buhari didn't deem it fit to include Prof. Osinbajo, a SAN in the meeting?

Which way Nigeria?
