Worried by the declining state of the Nigerian economy, Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has called on President Buhari to immediately convene an economic summit where Nigerians can brainstorm on how to get the country out of it. Soyinka said this during a courtesy call to the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed in Abuja yesterday February 18th.
“I agree with those who say the economy is bad. It is obvious and it is so bad. I think the Presidency should call an emergency economic conference where experts will be enlightened. We really need an emergency economic conference, bringing experts together to march the nation forward. I think the economy is not encouraging. Quite frankly, I think most economists will agree with this.”he said
