Nigerian Economic Summit


The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal, who gave the assurance at the closing of the Nigerian Economic Summit, said that there can be no development without peace in the country.

He said that 90% of the budget of north-eastern states was presently spent on security alone, which required that the area be given appropriate support from all quarters to restore peace in the region and the country as a whole.

Discussions to round up the 3-day economic summit were centred on security and peace in Nigeria and how to bridge the gaps in current strategies, mitigation measures and improving early warning signals, all towards facilitating a sustainable business environment.

Key among the resolutions was that development and peace are interlinked and that Nigeria must begin to make provisions for life beyond the restoration of peace to ensure it is sustained.
