Business leaders, investors and captains of industry across various sectors now have a glimpse into the economic agenda of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tinubu and his team, on Tuesday, shared details of his economic blueprint with the organised private sector during an interactive meeting with industrialists, business executives, entrepreneurs and foreign investors in Lagos.
The forum, held at the Eko Hotels and Suites in Victoria Island, was organised at the instance of the Lagos State Government.
Chairman of Dangote Group, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, foremost entrepreneur and investor, Tony Elumelu, and founder of Zenith Bank, Mr. Jim Ovia, led the pack of business leaders that graced the event, which was also attended by Tinubu’s running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima, APC governors and party stalwarts.
Also at the event were Chairman, Progressives Governors Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Senator Atiku Bagudu; Jigawa State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Badaru; Tinubu’s his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima; Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje; his Niger State counterpart, Abubakar Sani Bello; Director General of the APC Presidential Campaign Council/Plateau State Governor, Barr Simon Lalong and representative of the National Chairman, Hon Emma Enuku, Kaduna Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai and others.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu set the tone for the engagement, noting that Tinubu’s meeting with the organised private sector players way ahead of his fellow contenders in the presidential race demonstrated the APC candidate’s commitment and seriousness to drive the desired change expected in the national economy.
Tinubu said the 2023 presidential election presented another opportunity for Nigeria, which he said, stands at the threshold between indifference and greatness.
He said the cardinal programmes of his economic policies would not be limited to the sole domain of one sector, noting that the benefits would be reaped in the cooperation between government and the private sector.
