Details Of The Dialogue Atiku Had With The NESG At The Lagos Summit

Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate in 2023 election, was in Lagos on Monday for a scheduled meeting with the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG).
According to thisweekng, the former vice president acknowledged on Twitter that he arrived at the Summit House on Monday about 10:30 AM.

Atiku added, speaking to business leaders and elites at the summit, that if the government provides the people with sufficient economic possibilities, it will have a tremendous impact on their socioeconomic circumstances.

The presidential candidate believes that any policy or economic program cannot succeed without a firm handshake with business.

In a dig at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government, Atiku stated that the failure of the Muhammadu Buhari administration is plainly visible to every Nigerian.

The PDP presidential contender claimed that “capital has taken a flight alongside policy incoherence, which continues to cause an impediment to economic growth.”

Atiku said that his administration will encourage the private sector to spur growth if he were to become the next president of Nigeria.

We have done it before, and you know we can do it again,” Atiku boasts.

He added: “We will create a strong partnership with the private sector to create jobs, grow our infrastructure, and fight poverty.” Our government will tackle the deficit in infrastructure financing and fast-track infrastructure development in the country.

“We will review government procurement processes to ensure value for money.”

“No one should downplay the enormity of the task ahead.” I have a good knowledge of the challenges facing Nigeria. I will come prepared and experienced.

“It will be dangerous for Nigeria to relinquish their future to a greenhorn or the national leader of the same party that brought us to this very sorry situation,” the presidential hopeful said.

He added: “I’m sure you still remember the good old days of rapid economic growth with stable interest and exchange rates, low inflation, low unemployment rates and low poverty headcount.” We paid off nearly all of our foreign debt which was crippling the country.

“As head of the economic management team while I was Vice President, I was instrumental in designing a private sector revival strategy and advocated for the opening of the economy for private sector investments in several sectors. And we made tremendous progress.”
