As the World Bank-IMF Spring Meetings intensify in Washington DC, the Federal Government has assured that it will continue to showcase the progress made so far in the Nigerian economy in order to attract more foreign investment into the country with a view to improving on the lives of Nigerians

The Minister of Finance and Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, Mr Wale Edun, gave the assurance in Washington when he granted audience to some newsmen.

He stated that the bold, courageous and strategic reforms of the Nigerian economy embarked upon by the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Administration aims not only at stabilising the nation’s economy in order to boost foreign investment into the country but also to provide opportunities for job creation and poverty reduction.

The Minister informed that the economy is moving in the right direction as the policies put in place by the present administration have started slowing down food inflation.

Edun explained that both he, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Finance Mrs Lydia Shehu Jafiya, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Olayemi Cardoso, and other key government officials are in Washington DC to showcase the progress made so far in the Nigerian economy.

“The Economic Team of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is here to showcase the progress so far made of his bold, courageous and strategic reforms for the Nigerian economy in order to get it stabilised so as to attract foreign investment, create jobs for our people, reduce poverty and enhance our economic growth and development in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Administration.

“We have all seen what has happened in terms of stabilising the exchange rate and inflation, which is now heading in the right direction.

“If you look closely at the numbers that came out especially from Monday, you will see that there is a slowing of the rate of increase of food inflation, things are moving in the right direction, government revenues are up, even oil revenues are up but not as much as we will like. But I assure you that with our resilience, we will get there,” concludes the Minister.
