BREAKING: Tinubu Inaugurates Presidential Economic Coordinating Committee

President Bola Tinubu has inaugurated a Presidential Economic Coordinating Committee aimed at revitalizing the economy swiftly.

The Committee includes influential figures from the private sector, such as Aliko Dangote, Chairman of Dangote Group; Tony Elumelu, Chairman of Heirs Holdings; and Wale Edun, Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy.

The group is expected to inject over ₦2 trillion into the Nigerian economy to stimulate growth.

During the inauguration ceremony at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Thursday, Tinubu directed the allocation of specific funds: ₦250 billion for Health and Social Welfare and ₦500 billion for Energy and Power, among other economic support measures.

These initiatives are likely in response to the current inflationary trends that have sparked widespread complaints among Nigerians.
