Nigeria’s Economy Can Be Turned Around In Months — Dangote

President of the Dangote Industries Limited, Mr Aliko Dangote, says Nigeria has all it takes to turn its economy around within months.

He stated this on Thursday while briefing State House reporters after President Bola Tinubu inaugurated the Presidential Economic Coordination Council (PECC).

The PECC, tasked with strategising a way out of the current economic situation in the country, has a mix of government officials, top private sector players, and consultants including Dangote; Chairman of the United Bank of Africa, Mr Tony Elumelu; and Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Derivatives Company Limited, Bismarck Rewane.

Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Mr Wale Edun said the Council is to meet and report to the President monthly.

Dangote applauded the president initiative, saying it will better the economy of the country and the Nigerian populace.

He said members of the council from the private and public sectors would sit regularly to advise the government on the kind of policies that government should roll out.

“Most of these things, we have them, there are already been discussed over and over again, it is a matter of implementation. I think the choice of people that are on the PECC, they are good enough to be able to advise government on how to implement the policies,” said Dangote, who is Africa's richest man.

“The private sector will do its own bit which is to invest heavily and create jobs. Government don't really create jobs, what they do is to give us the right policies. We have all these policies.

“I keep saying our issues are not that bad, this economy can be turned around within few months and I think we are on that way. I thank the President for inaugurating this Council.

“We will start working immediately and I can assure you (that) you will see a lot of changes coming. We have what it takes to turn around this economy. We are going to work hard to make Nigerians proud.”

Nigeria is battling inflation, high cost of living, and other economic crisss sparked by the government's twin policies of petrol subsidy removal and unification of forex windows.
