There are many challenges ahead and it may go on for many administrations.

Nigeria is currently facing a number of significant economic challenges. The country has been struggling to generate enough Revenue to cover its expenses, and it has been forced to borrow money in order to make up the shortfall. In order to address this issue, the Nigerian government will need to create policies that make it easier for businesses to operate and generate revenue. This is an important step, as the Public Sector can play a key role in helping the country to overcome its current economic difficulties. Nigeria has already been successful in bringing in a total of ₦5 trillion in revenue, but most of this was used to repay debts. We will need to continue to borrow money in order to cover the shortfall.

Nigeria is in a lot of debt, and it’s only going to get worse. The government is planning to borrow more money to Finance the budget, and the NNPC has submitted a budget for fuel subsidy that’s ₦3 trillion. This is a huge problem, because if Nigeria was a man who made ₦100k a month, he would be borrowing ₦5 million every month just to pay for the light bill and running of the house. We are already at 39% debt-to-GDP, and if our revenue keeps dropping, we will really have a debt problem. Nigeria’s debt-to-GDP ratio is already at 39%, and it’s only going to get worse.

The benefits of a new trade policy are clear, including massive job creation.

Tax laws play a significant role in the Economy by affecting the prices of goods, the value of currency, and overall market conditions. Nigeria is currently in a revenue crisis, and it is essential to explore innovative and transformative tools to bring the country out of this situation. Law is one of these potential tools, as it has the ability to extract revenue and create jobs. In order to illustrate how law can serve as a primer of Innovation and transformation for the Nigerian economy, we have developed a proposal that outlines the various ways in which this can be accomplished.

Nigeria has a lot of potential to enact effective Trade policy that can protect its local industries and economy. A new trade policy can generate over N 1 trillion annually, including massive job creation. The benefits of a new trade policy are clear, and Nigeria should move quickly to enact it.

The maritime industry is being neglected and Nigeria is losing billions.

Nigeria is losing a lot of money by not taking advantage of its own airspace! A policy change to ensure that all public funds for Air Travel must originate and fly on a Nigerian carrier will create an instant market for goods, passengers, and services. This will create jobs and revenue for the Nigerian economy. The maritime industry is being neglected and Nigeria is losing billions of dollars each year. We need to pass a Fly Nigeria Act to take advantage of our natural resources and generate wealth for our country. For too long, our country has been dependent on other countries for our air travel and maritime industry. It is time for us to take control of our own destiny and invest in our own economy.

Generally speaking, the legal services spend, which is revenue generated and accruable, ought to be invested in Nigeria with the relevant multiplier effects, such as job creation and development. However, this is not currently the case as funds accruable to Nigeria in relation to crude oil production are instead repatriated. This has significant negative consequences for the Nigerian economy.

This legislation would help to develop the sector.

The Nigerian Financial Services sector is not flourishing due to a lack of key Legislation and institutions. In order for the sector to operate optimally, we need banking legislation that delivers credit to the economy and stimulates growth. This legislation would help to develop the sector and improve the overall economy by providing more opportunities for businesses to grow and create jobs. Unfortunately, the current banking legislation is not meeting the needs of the Nigerian Financial Services sector, and this is causing problems for the overall economy. Until this legislation is updated, the Nigerian Financial Services sector will continue to suffer.
