What Can He Do? Shehu Sani Knocks Buhari For Appointing New Economic Adviser

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has criticized the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint a new economic adviser.

It will be recalled as earlier reported by Naija News that President Buhari on Tuesday approved the appointment of Dr. Doyin Salami as his Chief Economic Adviser.

This online news platform reports that Dr. Salami was the Chairman of the Presidential Economic Advisory Council, PEAC.

But Sani in a reaction to the development via his Twitter account questioned the rationale behind appointing a new economic adviser by the president.

In his view, there is nothing much the new appointee can achieve in repositioning the country’s economy with just about two years left before the current administration ends.

“What can Chief Economic Adviser do with less than two years to go?, Sani queried in his Twitter post on Tuesday.

Naija News reports that Salami is a 1989 doctorate degree graduate of Economics from the Queen Mary College, University of London.

The 59-year-old is the Managing Director and Head Markets Practice at KAINOS Edge Consulting Limited, and member of the Adjunct Faculty at the Lagos Business School (LBS), Pan-Atlantic University, where he recently attained the rank of Senior Fellow/Associate Professor.

The Chief Economic Adviser to Buhari is expected to address all issues on the domestic economy and present views on them to the President.

The Adviser is also expected to closely monitor national and international developments, trends and develop appropriate policy responses; develop and recommend to the President national economic policies to foster macro-economic stability, promote growth, create jobs, and eradicate poverty, among others.
