As part of measures to tackle the ongoing hardship in the country, President Bola Tinubu on Sunday established an economic advisory committee.

Governor of Anambra, Charles Soludo, and Dapo Abiodun, his Ogun counterpart, were also part of the meeting.

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

On his part, Dangote said, “We had a very good meeting and what we discussed is generally about the economy, food security and security of the nation. We discussed everything in detail. And there is the economic presidential advisory committee which has been set up and I think this will look at all the issues and address them.

“I can’t give you all the details right now, but we are hopeful and we’re a great nation. We have what it takes to turn around the economy and we’re going to do that.”
