The Boiling Point Arena, a monthly online discourse on governance and national development, will feature three of Nigeria’s foremost economists and finance experts, Biodun Adedipe, Kehinde Sogunle, and Paul Alaje as they dissect the topic: “The Current State of Nigeria’s Economy: Can Nigerians Breathe and Survive?”
The trio is to walk the audience through Nigeria’s past economic blueprints starting from the oil boom era of the 70s which positioned Nigeria as a potential economic giant, the economic doom that plagued the 2nd Republic era, the Structural Adjustment Programme of the Babangida Regime up till the current emerging economic agenda of the Tinubu Administration.
The interview discourse will in particular brainstorm on the debilitating effects of the economic agenda currently being implemented stemming from the removal of oil subsidy and devaluation of the Naira, with a view to proffering lasting solutions capable of bringing the country out of the doldrums and thereby rescuing the majority of Nigerians out of the poverty trap.
