The Vice President, Sen. Kashim Shettima has assured Nigerians of the determination of the Tinubu administration to continue to develop economic policies and programs that will drive investments and create more jobs, especially in agriculture and the digital sector.

He gave the assurance on Tuesday when the board and management of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) led by the Chairman, Mr. Olaniyi Yusuf, paid him a visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to Vice President Shettima, “The President is determined to redefine the meaning and concept of modern leadership, be rest assured that we will continue to develop policies that will drive investment.”

Senator Kashim explained that the Federal Government will among other measures, enhance engagements and partnerships with the private sector, including the NESG, to achieve its objectives.

“I will suggest that we have a quarterly mini-summit (between the NESG and NEC) so that we can digest the previous 3 months, cross-pollinate ideas and come up with robust solutions to our nation’s challenges. It is essential because the world today is knowledge-driven. Nobody has the monopoly of ideas that is why we have to constantly engage with you.”

Speaking about harnessing Nigeria’s population for economic development, Vice President Shettima noted that “the trajectory of global growth which is facing Africa and Nigeria will make or mar that transition. The anticipated demographic bulge by 2050 where we are expected to be the 3rd most populous nation on earth is a major factor.”

Earlier in his remarks, the Chairman of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG), Mr Yusuf said the visit was to congratulate the VP and offer the group’s support for the Tinubu administration, especially in strategic areas of the economy.

“The NESG offers its support and is always willing to assist the new government in its strategic priorities and initiatives aimed at actualizing the mandate of the President Bola Tinubu administration,” he said.

Also, present at the meeting with the VP were the Chief Executive Officer of NESG, Mr. Laoye Jaiyeola; former NESG Chairman, Mr Kyari Bukar; NESG Chief Operating Officer, Dr Tayo Aduloju, and Lumun Feese, among others.
