Dr Samuel Nzekwe, a former president of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN), has advised the Federal Government to formulate policies that would reduce inflation and boost the economy.
Nzekwe gave the advice in an interview in Ota, Ogun, on Tuesday, he said that the Federal Government needed to make policies that would lead to the growth of the economy.
Nzekwe said there were still some areas of the economy that the Federal Government needed to re-double its efforts in order to achieve meaningful result.
He also said Nigerians were waiting for the dividends of democracy through the provision of job opportunities and infrastructural development.
Nzekwe said that the Buhari administration had done well in the area of recovery of stolen funds and tackling of the Boko Haram insurgency in the northern part of the country.
”A reasonable amount has been recovered from the corrupt officials of the past administration and the menace of Boko Haran has been reduced to the barest minimum,” he said.
Nzekwe stated that the government also needed to intensify efforts at providing stable electricity supply, saying that this would create jobs for artisans and attract foreign investors.
He also commended the Federal Government’s flexible exchange rate and appealed that the policy should be implemented across board.
”There should be equal incentives for both critical import and normal import,” he said.
