President Muhammadu Buhari has launched the Nigeria Agenda 2050 aimed at increasing real Gross Domestic Product growth by seven per cent and create 165 million new jobs across the country.

The launch which comes nearly seven weeks after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved the policy document on March 15, was conducted by the President before the commencement of the weekly FEC meeting.

In his remarks, the President Buhari asserted that the vision is a product of a dynamic knowledge based economy to provide sustainable development by 2050.

He expressed belief that the document which equally aims to increase per capita income of Nigeria to 33,328 dollars per annum to be placed amongst the world’s top economies by 2050, will be useful for subsequent administrations.
