Beyond Recession: Towards A Resilient Economy.
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
As part of their 14th Daily Trust Dialogue, the management of Daily Trust requested a presentation from me on “BEYOND RECESSION: TOWARDS A RESILIENT ECONOMY”. My focus will be on “Towards a resilient economy”, because virtually all the actions and policies that are required to help build a resilient economy are the exact same ones that will naturally take Nigeria well beyond today’s economic recession and unto a path of rapid and sustainable economic growth. If you aim for the skies you might end up at the ceiling. Likewise, if you do what is necessary to achieve rapid economic growth, then the chances are that you will at least attain modest growth, even where some plans fail.
To help parents minimize the financial burden of school fees as schools reopen for a new term, Stanbic IBTC Bank, a member of Stanbic IBTC Holdings, has encouraged parents to take advantage of its bouquet of payment solutions.
Stanbic IBTC Bank listed its educational payment solutions to include, Short Term Loans, Salary Advance (SALAD) for salaried workers as well as its Credit Cards that parents can take advantage of to pay the school fees of their children/wards without negatively impacting the family income.
Last week E-Daily reported that Sound Sultan, Lepacious Bose and others posted series of prayers on Instagram for safe return of ace comedian, Julius Agwu who was receiving treatment abroad after allegedly suffering a relapse from a brain surgery he had two years ago and it seems their prayers have been answered fast enough.

Immediately there were torrents of goodwill wishes.
Mr Sabastine Hon (SAN), a constitutional lawyer, has expressed support that Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU) should use force in The Gambia political logjam. ECOWAS and AU plan to force President Yahaya Jammeh of The Gambia out of office and install the President-elect, Adama Barrow. Hon, who supported the use of force decried the vexed political situation in The Gambia, noting that it had reached a situation that called for urgent action.
The Stanbic IBTC’s Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) has indicated that the index attained a five month high, which was a reflection of an improvement in the macroeconomy.
This emerged after the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) revealed that its Manufacturing PMI stood at 52 index points in December 2016, also indicating an expansion in the manufacturing sector during the review period. The central bank’s PMI index had recorded decline in the preceding eleven months.
