As Nigerians find themselves in the limbo as government revenue generation dwindles amidst daunting economic and insecurity challenges, the Nigeria Economic Summit Group, NESG, told the Federal Government to take decisive action now on leakages, crude oil theft, new innovation on tax collection, and other burning issues negatively affecting the socio-economic lives of Nigerians within the 10 months left for the Buhari-led presidency.
This was part of a communique issued by the Board of Directors of NESG.
NESG in the communique raised salient issues of concern, which it recalled that on 29 May 2015, the current administration was ushered in by a wave of hope, goodwill, and an overwhelming belief that real change was possible.
Well-meaning individuals and institutions provided all the necessary
support to ensure that the administration leveraged on the momentum
that propelled it into power, to deliver on its ‘change’ mantra effectively.
There was renewed optimism, especially as the President made clear commitments to address the pressing issues of insecurity, corruption,
and economic stagnation.
Meanwhile, the NESG group lamented and expressed pain over the
current precious economic situation pounding Nigerians.
