No plan to have coordinating minister of the economy, says FG


President Muhammadu Buhari will not have a coordinating minister of the economy as it was done during the last administration.
According to the Tribune, this was disclosed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo while receiving the Australian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr John Richardson, in Abuja, on Wednesday.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Laolu Akande, the vice president said: "We are not going to have a system like where there was a coordinating minister. No, there would not be anything like that."
According to the statement, the vice president's role is "to ensure that everyone that is involved in economic activities, ...that there is a way by which the president is fully apprised of what everyone is doing such that we are all on same page and to make it easier for the president to make decisions."
