Saraki assures on economic policies
SENATE President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has said that the Eighth Senate would collaborate with the Executive arm of government to ensure that the policies and programmes of the present administration aimed at reviving the economy are sustained on a long-term basis.
Saraki, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu in Abuja, stated this when he received the national executive members of the Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society (NMGS) led by its President, Prof. Olugbenga Okunola.
He said: “For us in the Eighth Senate, we have said it that our focus is to continue to give support to those sectors of our economy that will provide employment, increase the earnings of government and the growth of the economy in general.
“And if you are talking about the growth of the economy, you have to give particular consideration to the mining sector. And what do we need to do to get that done? I want to assure you that the message I will like you to take away is that the Eighth Senate is ready to give all the support in ensuring that we truly begin to harness the hitherto unexplored and neglected potentials that we have.
