Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Labour Party candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has disclosed his plans to revitalise the Nigerian economy if he emerges as the president of the country.
In two tweets he personally signed off on Tuesday via his verified Twitter handle, the Labour Party flag bearer gave a hint that his administration will set up a committee of economic experts to champion the revival of the country’s economy.
“My administration will not embark on drafting a new economic plan, but I will set up a small national working committee of policy, planning and economic experts to distill critical lessons from and key elements of Economic Empowerment Development Strategies since 1999.
“The goal will be to use the vitally pertinent provisions of these plans by previous administrations to kick start our national economic revival, overcome Nigeria’s sub-optimal performance relative to its set growth targets, and seek to achieve and supersede the target annual average economic growth rate of 4.7percent set in the 2021-2025 plan,” Obi tweeted.
