The Presidency has disclosed that the aim behind the three new executive orders signed by Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, is to transform the business environment and how government activities were often executed in the country.

It added that to further explain the aim behind thethree new executive orders, Osinbajo would hold an interactive event in Abuja next week.

The Spokesperson to the Acting President, Laolu Akande, who disclosed the aim behind the order in a statement on Sunday, noted that Osinbajo would at the event discuss 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 in the country.

He said: “These are the people who will be directly responsible for the attainment of the objectives of the executive orders, so the Ag. President wants an opportunity to talk with them directly and also hear from them in person.”

Akande added that ensuring the effective implementation of the orders are critical for the overall prosperity of Nigerians and Nigeria.

Besides, as part of activities commemorating the Second year of the present administration, the spokesman hinted that as part of the activities lined to mark the day, a presidential level Report Card event on the Social Investment Programmes of the Buhari presidency would be held at Aso Rock.

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

The SIPs are the N-Power, which selected and engaged 200,000 unemployed Nigerians graduates for a volunteer job programmers, the Conditional Cash Transfer being implemented now in 9 states, General Economic & Empowerment Programme, GEEP-a micro credit scheme that has given out almost 60,000 loans out already, and the National Homegrown School Feeding Programme, where 25 million meals have been served and over 1 million primary school pupils in at least seven states are being fed and over 11,000 cooks hired.

Regarding media inquiries on the progress of the report of the Presidential Investigative Panel, Akande urged for patience explaining that when time comes the outcome of the panel would be made manifestly public “and Nigerians would be satisfied.”

He said the two suspended officials remain suspended.
