Buhari to set up Economic Management Team soon

09 February 2016, 20:36

Abuja - Following criticisms of Federal Government’s lack of economic direction, President Muhammadu Buhari seems to be putting together his Economic Management Team.

The first few members of the team held a first unofficial meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Monday behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa.

This was one of the first meetings, Osinbajo who arrived the office at about 9 am Monday morning, held in his announced capacity as acting President.

The constitution of  the team, it was gathered, was necessitated by concerns raised by governors at their last Governors Forum, and subsequently the National Economic Council meeting chaired by the Vice President, on the lack of direction of the economy.

Some of those who were noticed at the meeting, were the ministers of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, Budget and National Planning, Udo Udoma, Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah, Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, amongst other Presidential staff.

The Economic Management Team is an idea propagated by former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime to issue guidelines for the best way possible to work on economic policies and implementation.
