As Nigeria continues to battle the novel coronavirus pandemic, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has on Thursday, June 11, pointed out that Nigeria can actually turn the situation into an economic victory.
This vice president disclosed this at the State House in Abuja after presenting post-COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Osinbajo led the Economic Sustainability Committee to submit the report entitled, "Bouncing Back: The Nigerian Economic Sustainability Plan".
"We are confident that if the proposals are taken as a whole and implemented conscientiously, Nigeria will avert the worst of the impending economic headwinds, and convert this crisis to a victory for the Nigerian economy," he said.
Recall that Legit.ng had recently reported that Osinbajo and Buhari were billed to hold a crucial meeting on the issue of coronavirus.
According to Laolu Akande, Osinbajo's media aide, the crucial meeting between his principal and the president is aimed at coming up with a sustainability plan that can be followed through in reviving Nigeria's economy.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had also reported that a group, West African Action Network on Small Arms (WAANSA) Nigeria, have urged the federal government to provide special packages for personnel of security agencies who worked to ensure that the lockdown in the country was largely successful.
WAANSA Nigeria, a foremost civil society group focused on security issues, peace and development, made the call via a statement on Monday, May 25.
The statement, signed by Temitope Lamidi, was released after the inauguration of WAANSA Nigeria Global Wear Orange Against Gun Violence campaign coming up on Friday, June 5.
The Wear Orange campaign honours the memory of those who have lost their lives and calls for a future free of gun violence.
WAANSA is leading the campaign in West Africa as the world standstill on the day to pay homage to those who lost their lives to gun violence.
