The Publisher of Orient Newspaper, Chief Godwin Ezeemo, has lauded President Muhammadu Buhari’s policies and programmes put in place to revive the ailing nation’s economy.
Ezeemo spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Sunday.
“I sincerely believe he means well for the country by putting policies that would get rid of corruption, while stabilising the economy through focus on power generation.
“But its application must be subtle so as to ensure that no sector suffers,’’ he said.
The publisher, however, urged Federal Government to support indigenous investors by making economic policies that would protect local industries.
“I understand the change Mr President is trying to inject into the system and I trust his intentions to be good for an average Nigerian.
“However, it should be applied step by step and its responses should be watched in order to protect our local industries,’’ he said.
Ezeemo also called on the government to review and evaluate its economic policies so that it would bring rapid development to all sectors of the economy.
He said there was an urgent need to look into the high cost of raw materials, which had gone up recently. (NAN)
