As part of measures to address the current economic recession, President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned experts and analysts to an “economic war room” to save the economy from doom.

Those invited are economic experts, who were billed to converge at the Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos, on Thursday morning, September 15 2016, to have a policy dialogue on the current foreign exchange regime.

The economic dialogue which was to be hosted by British High Commission and the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG), was cancelled at the last minute.

The dialogue was to be attended by stakeholders from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ministry of trade, ministry of finance, Bank of Industry (BoI), SMEDAN and Nigerian customs, private sector groups like business owners and consumer protection groups.

According to one of the organisers, the panelists for the dialogue, were summoned by the president to an “economic forum for saving the economy”.
