The Lagos State branch of the University of Ibadan Alumni Association (UIAA) has proposed promotion of financial investment in economy, focus on increasing inventors, infrastructural development and formulation of requisite fiscal policies as initiatives to drive Nigeria’s post-COVID-19 economic recovery.

The measures were highlighted at a roundtable discussion to help chart a roadmap for the country to navigate the economy out of the pandemic woods.

Chief Executive Officer of Economic Associate, Dr. Ayo Teriba, dismissed the economic effect of COVID-19, noting that it might fade out in 2021.

Also, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs, Mrs. Kikelomo Sanyaolu, representative of the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Olusola Hazmat, applauded the association for creating an enabling platform to discuss economic growth of the country.

She stressed the need to engage various stakeholders on economic summit frequently for the advancement of the nation.

In the same vein, Lagos State Chairman of UIAA, Dauda Folaranmi, who spoke on the role of the association in nation-building, said the association was concerned with the progress of the institution, welfare of members and moulding the nation towards development.

“The association is concerned in moulding pillars that would ensure the progressive development of the government, the people and society at large. The university has maintained this symbiotic relationship since the establishment of the union some decades ago. We decided to bring together economic experts to proffer solutions to help avert the aftermath of the virus,” he said.
