Nigeria on growth trajectory, says Ovia
The Chairman of Zenith Bank Plc., Mr. Jim Ovia, has acknowledged that the country’s economic outlook shows that it is now on a growth trajectory even as he commended federal government’s team for pulling the economy out of recession.
In his goodwill message at the Deloitte in Dialogue Nigeria Economic Outlook 2019 last Thursday in Lagos, he identified two key areas: ease of doing business, and the nation’s inflation rate.
He commended the present economic team on the nation’s remarkable improvement on the ease of doing business index. Specifically, he also lauded the two ministers present at the event – the Honorable Minister of Finance, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed and the Honorable Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma – as well as the Honorable Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, and the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
While commending the ministers for an excellent job, he further charged them with the responsibility of improving the nation’s ranking on the ease of doing business index. According to him “the target for the ease of doing business for Nigeria in 2019 in terms of ranking should be single digit”.
