Nigeria to become 14th best global economy by 2050, says TETfund boss
The Executive Secretary of Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Dr. Abdullahi Baffa-Bichi, has predicted Nigeria would become the 14th best economy in the world by 2050.
Baffa-Bichi said this during an interactive session with members of the Buhari Support Political Group, “One 2 Tell 10’’, in Kano yesterday.
According to him, indices of growth and development are manifesting following the sound and excellent economic policy introduced by the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He noted that a report released by an established global economic expert had also predicted that Nigeria would be the 14th biggest economy in the world in 2050.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Baffa-Bichi disclosed that the report, titled “The World in 2050,” which was released recently, attributed this to the current economic revolution introduced by the Buhari administration.
He said Nigeria’s economy is now on a sound footing as evident by the stability in the business and investment environment.
The TETfund boss, who commended Buhari for his good economic policies and initiatives, which were responsible for the country to get out of recession within just two years, said the feat was certified by the major financial players in the world, such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.
“If not for the prudent management of resources instilled by the administration, Nigeria would have been in a serious economic crisis,” he said.
Baffa-Bichi, who is the Director-General of the “One 2 Tell 10’’ movement, expressed optimism that Nigeria would soon be among the best economies in the world if these policies are sustained.
He, therefore, said such achievements alone should make Nigerian electorate renew their mandate to the government.
The director-general of the group, who commended the members for their steadfastness and commitment towards ensuring the success of the APC administration, urged them to redouble their efforts in their campaign for the re-election of Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) at all levels in the 2019 general elections.
“Nigerians are now wiser and they have seen the good works of Buhari,” he said.
