Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, led the members of the Economic Sustainability Committee (ESC) in an interaction this afternoon with the leadership of the National Assembly on the draft Sustainability Plan, ahead of the submission of the plan to the President.

The virtual meeting, anchored from the Presidential Villa, was attended by the Senate President, Speaker of the House of Representatives and several other principal officers of the National Assembly including members of the opposition.

Osinbajo said the ESC called the meeting to consult with the National Assembly before the Committee’s report is submitted to the President. Mr Osinbajo praised the efforts of the team and stated that the president had always appreciated the good working relationship between the executive arm of the federal Government and the National Assembly.

He added that it is very clear that COVID-19 has presented the country with an enormous economic challenge and also an opportunity.

“This is why the Economic Sustainability Committee is interacting with the National Assembly,” he noted.

Speaking at the virtual meeting both the Senate President and Speaker welcomed the plan and commended the President and the Vice President for calling the meeting to enable the Legislative arm of govt review the plan and make comments.
