WASHINGTON – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari told Liberians on Friday that his Economic and Recovery Growth Plan launched in 2017 is working very well. It is, he explained, creating an enabling environment for growth, security and economic revival.

“In our efforts to stimulate the economy, our government initiated bold policy interventions that are beginning to yield positive results,” he said.

“Our government had to adopt appropriate measures including diversification and reforms to address such underlying causes exemplified by our continued dependence on a single-commodity, crude oil, lack of fiscal buffers, leakages, corruption and high governance costs,” Mr Buhari added in a goodwill message to the Government and people of Liberia on behalf of Nigeria on the occasion of the 172nd independence anniversary of the West African nation.

He said his administration  had realized the futility in continuing to subject the Nigerian economy to the vagaries of its mono-product dependence  and has instituted policies aimed at the diversifying the national economy which are yielding positive results.

The Nigerian President, who was honored at the occasion with Liberia’s highest award, the “Most Venerable Order of the Knighthood of the Pioneers of the Republic of Liberia with Grade of the Knight Grand Cordon”, said he accepted it on behalf of all Nigerians and as a tribute to all our country men who paid the supreme price in aid of Liberia’s unity and stability.

He  thanked the people of Liberia for the award  and expressed his resolve to continue to strengthen cooperation within the sub region.

“This gesture can only strengthen my resolve to rededicate myself to the service of my country, work for the prosperity of our people in the sub-region.”

The President encouraged his Liberian counterpart to take decisive actions to further stimulate the economy of the country:   “Mr. President, Liberia under your leadership may wish to learn from our experience by taking courageous steps to diversify its economic base by developing the productive sector that would complement earnings from rubber, iron ore and the increasingly dwindling funds from Development Partners.

“In this regard, the need for proper management of human resources and investment in agriculture, solid minerals and other sectors such as tourism where the country has comparative advantage, cannot be overstated.”
