The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has urged Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the incoming president, to assemble a group of experts and thinkers to develop a strategy for Nigeria’s economic recovery.
In a letter of congratulations to Tinubu that was penned by his director of media and publicity, Moses Olafare, the royal father made the call.
Ooni said, “You must immediately assemble a transition team of cerebral men and women to come up with an economic recovery blueprint upon your inauguration on May 29.
