Posted by admin | 9 years ago | 2,498 times

President Muhammadu Buhari has the Ministries of Industries, Trade and Investment, and Finance, as well as the Central Bank of Nigeria and other relevant government agencies to evolve new policies to boost domestic manufacturing before next year's budget.

The president also said‎ he would gladly reverse or abandon some inherited economic policies if doing so would lead to the creation of  more jobs for Nigerians.

A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity said Buhari made the statement at a meeting in the Presidential Villa  with Executive Members of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN).

He said: ‎ "We are in difficult times economically, but we'll continue to do our best for manufacturing to pick up. We must begin to behave as if we have no oil at all.

"We will gladly have policy somersaults, if it will mean more jobs, particularly  for youths. I campaigned on three major planks. To effectively secure our country, provide employment through revamping the economy, and wage a relentless war against corruption. I intend to keep faith with these promises."‎
