The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enalamah, during the 8th Session of the National Council on Industry, Trade and Investment, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, said that Nigerians will be stunned in 2017.
He says that the fruits of President Buhari’s administration today will begin to manifest in 2017.
“You will start seeing result at the end of this year and early next year. As far as I am concerned, next year is a year of results. All the work we are doing will start yielding results from this quarter.”
“The level of delivery in 2017 will surprise everybody. People may be saying we are not doing anything but it is impossible for a man to start broadcasting a plan we haven’t really put together well.”
The minister assured the Nigerians that the economic recession is being handled by the government. He confirmed that there are moves towards diversification and growth of the economy.
Backing his assertion, the minister said that the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment is working hand in hand with Private and Development Capital in order to “Leverage and Catalyze Resources for diversification and growth.”
“The challenge in every economy is that of infinite demands and finite resources. With limited resources therefore, the Diversification and Growth plan, otherwise known as the MITI Plan is based on a partnership with the private sector.”
To make the improvement of the Nigerian economy a reality Dr. Okechukwu Enalamah said the President has endorsed the establishment of the Presidential Council on Ease-of Doing Business (PEBES).
Adding to this, the president himself is assuring Nigerians that he will fix the economy, the Niger Delta situation and infrastructures, before he leaves office.
Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant on media and publicity, says that Shell Director, Mr. Andrew Brown, has confirmed the restoration and the resumption of oil exportation through the Forcados terminal.
The Trade minister, Okechukwu Enalamah, says that the economic surprises as a matter of fact will set in by the end of this year and stretch into 2017.
