Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) said it will engage presidential candidates in the 2023 election in a dialogue about the country’s economy.
NESG CEO, Laoye Jaiyeola, said the engagement is part of “our commitment to national development and our principle to provide an economic foundation for democracy.”
Jaiyeola in a statement disclosed that the dialogue with the presidential candidates will accentuate discussions on the roadmap towards an inclusive and prosperous Nigeria.
“Nigeria is at a decisive point in its history and as we countdown to the 2023 polls, it is critical, like never before, to nudge Nigerians towards making informed voting choices,” Jaiyeola said.
“The challenge before us, therefore, is to ensure the evolution of a process towards a leadership with a broad knowledge of the issues and the political will to steer the ship of our great nation towards shared economic prosperity.”
Through the engagement, Jaiyeola noted that NESG will actively seek independent direct engagements with the presidential candidates on critical economic policy reform issues and prescriptions centered on overall national interest.
The presidential dialogue series, according to him, is geared towards sensitising stakeholders and citizens of Nigeria on peaceful, informed and accountable democratic participation which will provide a unique opportunity for presidential candidates to discuss their economic agenda in an environment of civil discourse.
The Presidential Dialogue on Economic Policy will seek to curate content that focuses on the state of the economy and addresses the concerns of the citizens before the 2023 presidential elections scheduled for Saturday, February 2023, Jaiyeola said.Follow us on social media
