NLC asks President to improve economy
Ozo-Eson advised Mr. President to take advantage of the planned economic conference to make policies that will boost the nation’s economy.
The NLC scribe also revealed that labour was not invited to the economic conference.
Ozo-Eson said “We are not invited to the summit. So, if they are having their summit, we know they should be able to articulate positions, to discuss how to get this economy functioning because right now, it is actually not functioning. And there is a need to kick-start the economy.
“So it is their own, it is a government summit. We await the outcome but what is crucial is that this moment, a quick decision needs to be taken, and policies put in place to make this economy functioning again.
“We await what policies they will articulate in terms of manufacturing, in terms of agriculture, in terms of solid minerals but not just solid minerals, even a long term plan for it so that solid minerals will not also have the same problem that oil has.
“A programme that transforms the minerals into finished products is what will add value to the economy.”
On Thursday, February 18, 2016, Professor Wole Soyinka called on President Muhammadu Buhari to organize an emergency economic conference to find a solution to Nigeria’s current problems.
