President Muhammadu Buhari has advised the Nigerian public, especially media practitioners, to pay more attention to details about government policies.

According to a press statement, the president made the remark in an interview with editors of ‘The 2017 Nigeria Outlook’, a new economic and business annual soon to make its debut in May 2017.

“It is said that the onlooker sees more of the game than the person playing it. We are in government, and depend on feedback given by other stakeholders, particularly the media” the statement quoted the president to have said.  

Speaking with particular reference to the recently launched Nigeria Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (NERGP), Buhari said, “You are in a better position to gauge the reaction of the public to our economic blueprint. But one thing I can say confidently is that the ERGP, as enunciated by this administration, will place the Nigerian economy on a sound foundation that will stand us in good stead for decades.”

President Buhari also disclosed that “All prognosis point to the fact that Nigeria will exit recession soon. We will continue to do what we are doing, and count on the mercy and beneficence of Allah to bless it. Setting a time that we will exit recession is not as important as actually getting back to economic prosperity in the shortest possible time. And that is our goal.”
