Published

Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says a major feature of Nigeria’s economic response to the COVID-19 pandemic as indicated in the Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP) currently being implemented, has been an openness to new and creative ideas. Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja said the vice president spoke at a webinar with some French business leaders under the aegis of the Franco-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The vice president said that the approach was in a bid to save jobs, protect businesses, and attract new investments

He said that part of what the Federal Government had done in its response to the pandemic was to build a business environment that would be supportive of domestic and foreign investors. “It is important to recognise that the pandemic, which really is the cause of the downturn, not just in the Nigerian economy but practically all of our economies, all over the world, except perhaps China, also provides incredible opportunities for doing all manner of very innovative and creative things. According to him, it is a season to experiment and be ready to do a lot more.


According to him, it is a season to experiment and be ready to do a lot more. “ And if you look at our ESP, which is our response to the pandemic, what we tried to do was to do a few things that we thought would be game-changing. “For example, one of the important things that we are trying to do with respect to renewable energy is with solar power. “We are collaborating with several solar power companies to provide within the next 12 months, five million Nigerian households with solar home systems. “This is partly to address the issues with the national grid by providing more off-grid capacity and provide more opportunities in the renewable energy space. “ What we are doing is to get the financing through the Central Bank of Nigeria as part of the Economic Sustainability Plan.” Osinbajo said private sector commitment needed to align to the Federal Government’s backward integration policy.

He said he was glad to hear that the chamber was already doing 1.5 million litres of milk in Ogun, adding that there was still a lot more to be done. “For us, the issue of backward integration is right, front and centre, and it has been so for many years. “We believe that aggressive pursuit of it is really important for us as an economic policy. “The most important thing, as I said, is that we are committed to backward integration. “Unfortunately, over the years, many companies have committed to backward integration but have simply not been as diligent and faithful with those promises.

“So, we want to see the much greater commitment and a plan that is as aggressive as our aspirations,” he said. Participants at the forum included Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, the Executive Secretary, and Chairman, Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), Mrs. Yewande Sadiku and the French Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Jérôme Pasquier. Others were Chairman of the Board of the Franco-Nigeria Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Usman Mohammed, representatives of some French companies operating in Nigeria including Total Nigeria, Air France, Kwik Delivery, among others.
