Private and public sector professionals have urged the Muhammadu Buhari administration to use the opportunity of the next four years to marshal out clear-cut economic policies that can attract the needed investments.
They opine that the main problem the country faced in the first term was the lack of direction, adding that it doesn’t matter the economic policy, but that with the right people to manage the policy, the economy will thrive.
Tajudeen Akande, president, Lagos Country Club, says the Federal Government must engage more with the business communities in order to put forward a clear cut, well communicated policy to help businesses do their own strategic plans and strategic response.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos announcing activities to mark the 70th year anniversary of Lagos Country Club and the unveiling of the club’s new logo, Akande called on Buhari to as a matter of urgency set up a policy implementation team to carry out whatever policy government comes out with.
According to him, “The country cannot afford to wait for another six months for the list of the ministers. We must know the team that will drive the plan.”
Akande further said that in the almost 70 years of existence of Lagos country club, the group have undoubtedly made significant impact in the society at large and in our immediate environ; having provided excellent recreational facilities and a conducive atmosphere for relaxation.
“This has impacted positively in the life of our members as evidence in the large number of septuagenarian, octogenarian and a few nonagenarians still active in our midst, and interacting with young, vibrant, upwardly mobile business executives,” he said.
Babatunde Okunuga, director-general, Lagos Country Club 70th Anniversary said the success of the club today is not a happenstance, for this great club has been blessed with leaders who tilled the ground and rolled up sleeves to give us a befitting place we have prided as a second home.
He said part of activities lined up to mark the landmark event includes: Family funfair, Seminars, Wellness/health talk, Sports week, anniversary lecture on 30th July and the grand ball on the 3rd of August, 2019.
