President Muhammadu Buhari has constituted an Economic Advisory Council (EAC) and abolished the erstwhile Economic Management Team headed by the Vice President.
The council is made up of the following: Prof. Doyin Salami – Chairman, Dr. Mohammed Sagagi – Vice-Chairman, Prof. Ode Ojowu – Member, Dr. Shehu Yahaya – Member, and Dr. Iyabo Masha – Member.
Other members of the EAC include erstwhile CBN Governor Prof. Chukwuma Soludo – Member,
Mr. Bismark Rewane – Member, and Dr. Mohammed Adaya Salisu who is the Secretary (Senior Special Assistant to the President, Development Policy) of the EAC.
This advisory council will replace the current Economic Management Team (EMT) and will be reporting directly to the President.
The Economic Advisory Council (EAC) will advise the President on economic policy matters, including fiscal analysis, economic growth and a range of internal and global economic issues working with the relevant cabinet members and heads of monetary and fiscal agencies.
The EAC will have monthly technical sessions as well as scheduled quarterly meetings with the President. The Chairman may, however, request for unscheduled meetings if the need arises.
