The committee has been set up to help Tinubu’s administration tackle the scores of economic challenges the federal government is facing. The President has charged the committee to develop a policy framework to help his administration examine the proper steps to bring life back to the country’s economy.

Speaking at the meeting on behalf of the federal government, Tinubu said the goal “is to provide additional efforts” in stabilising the economy and ensuring the “best economic future” for Nigerians.

“We are not saying that we have all the answers. But we will not be blamed for not trying. We assure Nigerians that we will do our best to get our marshall plan in place and fashion out the best economic future for this country.” he added.

Moving forward, the new committee will meet from time to time to evaluate the situation in the country’s economy and make recommendations to Mr. President and the nation as well.
