The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, says the country is currently finalising “Nigeria Agenda 2050” to succeed Vision 2020, which lapsed two years ago.
Zainab said this in Abuja, at the 28th Nigerian Economic Summit.
The theme of thepis year’s edition is “2023 and Beyond: Priorities for Shared Prosperity”.
According to the minister, the government has earlier formulated the National Development Plan, 2021-2025 to succeed the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan ERGP, 2017- 2020.
The minister said that resources were being mobilised with less emphasis on oil revenues.
Zainab said that the theme for this year’s Summit was carefully chosen to provide direction for stakeholders to examine the progress the present government had made in delivering the NDP, 2021-2025.
She said that the Nigeria Agenda 2050, which would be inaugurated soon, seeks to increase the country’s per capita Gross Domestic Product GDP to 33,000 dollars.
