President Bola Tinubu has set up a tripartite economic advisory committee in what he described as part of his efforts in stabilising Nigeria’s economy.

The committee, which comprised representatives from the Federal and State governments as well as the Organised Private Sector, was assembled and announced by the President during a meeting he held with critical stakeholders during a meeting at the State House in Abuja on Sunday.

The President said, “We are doing what we can do right to bring life back to the economy. Like I said many times, the people of this country are only the people we have to pleased. And we are very much concerned. From students, to mothers, the fathers, farmers, the traders.

“Realising that everyone of us will have to fetch water from the same well, we are looking for additional efforts that might help the downtrodden Nigerians and we will provide that hope and assurance 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.”

Some members of the private sector include Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote; The Chairman of BUA Group, Abdulsamad Rabiu; ex-Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State; amongst others.

Briefing the press, Dangote said discussion focused mainly on the economy, food security, and job creation. He said the committee will look at all the issues and address them.

Also, Soludo said the committee will meet time to time and make recommendations to the President on economic matters.
