CEM ANNOUNCER, ECONOMY | The Nigerian economy has experienced turbulence in the last eight years in the hands of the last government of Muhammadu Buhari due to policies which were either considered inappropriate or ineffectively implemented or in their lag period. The struggling economy which was inherited by the current administration started to receive more shocks from first day such as the removal of petroleum subsidy by the current government of Bola Tinubu which has further exacerbated the headwinds against its growth.
While the economy is confronted with high inflation, high exchange rate, weakened growth, huge debt and dwindling revenue, there are optimism in some quarters on the recovery of the economy anchored on specific parameters. One of the parameters is the reinvestment of the funds saved from the subsidy removal which also is heavily dependent on certain fiscal policies.
Patrick Akamiokhor will x-ray those factors (policies) that have interplayed to result in the current state of the Nigerian economy as well as factors leading to where the economy is heading. He will be speaking on the ‘State of Nation’s Economy’ program hosted by CEM Television; an online television committed to fostering growth and development of the Nigerian economy.
