Despite the International Monetary Fund's lack of faith in Nigeria's Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, President Buhari seems unmoved.

On Wednesday, March 5 the president will launch the first phase of the plan in Abuja.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said this is part of the federal government's drive to sustain and build on the successes  recorded in the fight against corruption and improving security standards.

Adesina said the launch would take place in the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 11am (Nigerian Time).

“The Medium-Term ERGP, which had earlier been approved by the Federal Executive Council has amongst its broad strategic objectives, restoring sustainable, accelerated inclusive growth and development; investing in the people; and building a globally competitive economy,” the presidential spokesman added.
