The Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has declared that there will be a positive change in Nigerian economy within 12 and 18 months.
To show that President Muhammadu Buhari is doing everything possible to fulfill the promise of change, Osinbajo urged the private sector to partner with the government and help boost the nation’s economy.
The Acting President made this known on Tuesday, July 11, at the fourth Presidential Quarterly Business Forum that took place at the state house in Abuja, Channel TV reports.
He said: ‘’Admittedly, the economy has proven to be the biggest challenge of all noting that it was a challenge the administration took seriously, considering the impact the recession was having on Nigerians.’’
He also said that the government has been extremely mindful and doing everything possible to tackle the Nigerian challenges.
Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, remarked that the mobilisation of revenue through tax collection to fund the budget was crucial because Nigeria has gone beyond the level of looking for where to borrow.
Adeosun urged the private sector to take advantage of the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme offered by the government.
