The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry has said the forthcoming 2023 presidential polls will play a crucial role in bringing Nigeria’s economy out of the doldrums.
The President of the chamber, Dr Michael Olawale-Cole, stated this at the ‘Private sector economic forum’ organised by the LCCI on Monday.
According to him, while the chamber is non-partisan, it is however interested in the economic agenda of the candidates and their plans to make a better Nigeria in the next dispensation.
Olawale-Cole said, “The chamber is aware of the overshadowing effect of politics over economics in managing the Nigerian economy and would therefore wish to contribute to the setting of a new economic order that can take our economy from the doldrums.
“New policy directions, institutional reforms, and sound governance are critical to creating a new economic order in Nigeria.”
