For Nigeria to end its economic recession, the government must urgently create an enabling environment for the private sector to thrive and drive the economic recovery efforts, Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said.
Saraki, according to a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Mohammed Isa, made this known on Thursday while receiving members of the Association of Telecommunication Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), who paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.
He said, “we must move away from our thinking of the past that it is only government that can make our economy recover and grow. Even if the government spends all her monies without the efforts of the private sector, the situation would continue to be the same. It is only the private sector, if strengthened and encouraged, that can take us out of this recession.
