On Monday, the president spent almost two hours listening to the men and women that run the economy – the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma, the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, and Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele.

 

However the Minister and CBN Governor was said to have updated the president on the state of the economy , which said to be : implementation of the 2017 Budget, preparation for the 2018 budget, revenue strategies, combined cost reduction and debt management.

 

Furthermore, President Buhari who was pleased with the progress being made also reminded them that reviving the economy is one of the major planks on which campaign of his party was based.
