Reading Time: 2 minutes

[Abuja]–Acting President Yemi Osinbajo will be meeting with stakeholders over the implementation of the executive orders he signed last week.

Laolu Akande, the spokesman to the Acting President made this known in a statement he issued on Sunday.

According to him, as part of measures to drive the reforms intended in the executive orders, Osinbajo would hold an interactive forum in Abuja on Wednesday.

He said that Osinbajo  would be discussing in particular, the executive orders on business environment and promoting “Made-in-Nigeria” products with a cross-section of middle level and senior public and civil servants.

“These are the people who will be directly responsible for the attainment of the objectives of the executive orders.

“So the acting president wants an opportunity to talk with them directly and hear from them in person.”

“At this national event, we shall be updating Nigerians on the progress so far attained, how we are addressing some challenges and how Buhari’s Social Investment Programmes would be significantly expanded going forward,” Akande said.

He further stated that that as part of activities commemorating the second year of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, a presidential level report card event on the Social Investment Programmes  (SIPs) of the Buhari presidency would be held at Aso Rock on May 29.

The SIPs are the N-Power, which engaged 200,000 unemployed Nigerians graduates for a volunteer job programme and the Conditional Cash Transfer being implemented now in nine states.

Others are the General Economic and Empowerment Programme (GEEP), a micro credit scheme which according to him has given out almost 60,000 loans already, and the National Homegrown School Feeding Programme.
