President Buhari will today Wednesday launch the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan 2017-2020 which the Federal Government early in March released the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) for Nigeria’s economic recovery growth and sustainable development for 2017 – 2020.
The ceremonial presentation of the plan was suspended to allow President Buhari, returned from medical vacation.
The government expects the economy to climb out of recession and grow 2.19 percent this year.
According to a statement on Tuesday by the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the launching is in furtherance of the current administration’s drive to sustain and build on the successes so far recorded in tackling corruption, improving security and re-revamping the economy.
Adesina said the launching would take place in the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, at 11am.
“The Medium-Term ERGP, which had earlier been approved by the Federal Executive Council has amongst its broad strategic objectives, restoring sustainable, accelerated inclusive growth and development; investing in the people; and building a globally competitive economy,” the presidential spokesman added.
