@DrRafiqRaji: The Economic Advisory Council (EAC) should not waste any time. In any case, the members are all sound. If they are given the necessary political space and cover, it is almost certain they will succeed.
@BBoason: About two (2) months ago, I requested here on twitter that President @MBuhari sets up an all private sector led Economic Advisory Council. Mr President just did. He also scraped the extant Economic Management Team. New team reports directly to Mr President himself.
@Ogabs20: Now that @MBuhari has set up a strong Economic Advisory Council, the next step is to also set up a security Advisory Council.
@MoghaluKingsley: I commend President @MBuhari on his appointment or a new Economic Advisory Council to replace the Economic Management Team. In my book Build, Innovate and Grow (BIG) where I laid out a vision for Nigeria, this was exactly my recommendation on page 273. Glad it has been heeded.
Akin Oyebode: Very pleased with the newly constituted Economic Advisory Council constituted by @MBuhari. That’s a proper team, hope he listens to them.
@Netsry: I think the new Economic Advisory Council (EAC) of the Pres. Buhari administration has some of the best we have in this country. I expect them to be very proactive and productive in their advisory role, so as to move the nation forward.
