JUST IN: FG is doing everything possible to get out of recession – Zainab Ahmed


The Federal Government on Monday explained some of the measures being adopted to help get the country out of its current economic recession.

Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, outlined these measures while speaking at the 26th Nigerian Economic Summit.

She said the Federal Government was fully aware of the current economic situation and was working round the clock to reverse the trend and restore the economy on the path of sustainable inclusive growth.

The minister said, “To achieve these the government developed a sustainability plan to cushion the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and is already implementing policies aimed at stabilising the economy.

“Permit me to say that going forward, the Federal Government in partnership with NESG has been working together in implementing the National Development Plan and by extension the Regional and Global Development Agendas,” Ahmed said.

She added, “In order to ensure realisation of the continental and global aspirations, deliberate efforts have been put in place to effectively align the successor national plans being developed with these agendas.”
