D i r e c t o r –
General of
Onitsha Chamber
of Commerce,
Industry, Mines
and Agriculture,
Dominic Ajibo has
urged the federal
government to
involve the organised
private sector at any
stage of its economic
policy formulation.
Ajibo, who made
the call yesterday
in Onitsha while
speaking to newsmen,
criticised the federal
government for not
engaging the sector
in most policies in the
subsectors, adding
that the private sector
operators were more
conversant with the
problems facing local
manufacturers than
the government.
He, however,
lauded the
government over the
slight appreciation
of the naira against
the dollar, and called
for the sustenance
of policies to further
improve the economy.
He also urged the
federal government
to raise up the tempo
in the area of power
supply, which he
noted remained
critical to boosting
the nation’s economy,
adding that the
Presidential Enabling
E n v i r o n m e n t
Council, PEBEC,
initiated to ensure the
realisation of the plan,
was a good concept
and a welcome
“We see it as one of
the policies coming
out from the federal
government with
positive expectations.
What we want
are practical results
to guarantee the
resurrection of
moribund businesses
and return of
businesses that left the
shores of the country
to other places where
businesses thrive,” he
