Jonathan meets IMF chief, pledges to reposition Nigeria’s economy

PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan yesterday in Abuja told the visiting Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, that Nigeria was being repositioned to be a bigger player in the global economy. The country, according to Jonathan, would fall short of the expectations to be one of the world biggest economies if its economy is not transformed to guarantee greater stability and self-sustainability.

Meanwhile, the Senate President, David Mark, yesterday tasked the global financial institution to make its economic and financial policies friendly to Africa because a policy that does not work for a supposed beneficiary will not be acceptable. A statement issued by Mark’s Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, noted that Mark told Lagarde in Abuja that any economic policy that failed to bring succour to the people was worthless.
