Osinbajo Inaugurates Working Group For Economic Recovery Plan
A Core Working Group for the Federal Government's Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) Focus Labs has been put together by the Nigerian government.
The group was inaugurated on Tuesday by the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Core in their duties is the provision of the sector expertise required to run the three Labs.
Members of the Core Working Group, whose names have not been made public, are senior public officials.
Critics say Nigeria needs technocrats in core sectors to make the economy move forward.
President Muhammadu Buhari on April 5, 2017 launched Nigeria's Economic Recovery and Growth Plan in Abuja.
"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 Presidency said.
But while the Presidency and the Ministers of Finance, Budget and National Planning continue to churn out big vocabularies, Nigerians are only interested in what matters to them.
Macro and micro economics experts have also analyzed and overfed Nigerians with enough professional jargon. So can we speak English now?
Food on the table, jobs for the unemployed, hope for the entrepreneurs, good education, health facilities and security of lives and property are some of the things that the government hopes to before 2019.
