President Muhammadu Buhari would be told whenever the National Economic Council, NEC desires a briefing on the economy from the creation of the Economic Advisory Council, EAC, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has said.
In response to a request for clarification by members of the National Economic Council regarding NEC’s relationship with the newly announced Economic Advisory Council, EAC, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, told members that both councils are for the benefit of the President.
Prof. Osinbajo spoke at the 97th NEC meeting today at the Council Chambers.
His assertion followed recent mutterings in the polity that the president may have clipped the wings of the vice-president who until now had handled most of the issues pertaining to the economy.
“If NEC want to be briefed regularly by the Economic Advisory Council, EAC, we will request the President to do that,” the VP explained to the Council as he observed that such interactions will promote synergy.
