Nigerians have been urged to trust the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to deliver its promised of improving the nation’s economy.
Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, made this passionate appeal on Thursday during a meeting with the World Bank delegation to Nigeria.
The team from the global financial institution was in the country to get updates of some projects it was financing in some states of the federation.
During the meeting held in Abuja yesterday afternoon, Mrs Adeosun briefed the World Bank Mission comprising 10 Executive Directors on the progress made so far by the current government.
The Minister, who described the World Bank as “vital partners” for us in Nigeria, said he shared “encouraging news of the progress we’re making in stabilising and improving the Nigerian economy.”
Mrs Adeosun told the team that in the last two years, this administration has “made remarkable progress in our Ease of Doing Business Reforms.”
According to her, government has also “invested significantly more in infrastructure, and [has] been able to grow Nigeria’s taxpayer base from 14 million in 2016 to 19 million as at today.”
She, therefore, appealed to Nigerians to “trust the President Buhari Administration to deliver on its promises of improving the economy and providing sustainable infrastructure development.”
According to her, “All around the country, we have rail, power and road projects ongoing, creating jobs, and improving citizens’ lives.”
