The apex Igbo sociocultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has urged President Bola Tinubu to strategically overhaul his economic team.

Ohanaeze said strategically overhauling his economic team would address the escalating crisis in the Southwest and North.

It said Tinubu should emulate former President Olusegun Obasanjo and allow globally renowned Igbos steer his restructured economic team.

In a statement he signed, factional Secretary-General of Ohanaeze, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said: “President Tinubu should promptly consider a strategic overhaul of his Economic Team to address the escalating crises witnessed in the North and Southwest regions.

“It is paramount for President Tinubu to recognize the prevailing atmosphere of relative peace in the Southeast, underscored by the absence of rampant looting of essential resources that has plagued regions such as Abuja, parts of the North, and Southwest.

“Acknowledging the integral role played by Ndigbo as the economic backbone of Nigeria, President Tinubu is implored to draw inspiration from the leadership demonstrated by former president Obasanjo’s economic team, which was steered by globally renowned Igbo economists. Central to this proposal is the establishment of a new economic consortium led by Igbo professionals and advocating for Nigeria’s integration into the BRICS economic bloc, fostering a robust Naira that can compete effectively with other currencies through the discontinuation of the Dollar in Nigeria.”
