Nigeria created, saved over 2m jobs through ESP — Presidency

THE Presidency yesterday said Nigeria has created and saved over two million jobs through the implementation of the Economic Sustainability Plan, ESP, which began in June last year.

The ESP, chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, designed the N2.3 trillion ESP as the country’s response to the economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While inaugurating the committee in March 2020, President Muhammadu Buhari charged members, among other things, to develop a clear economic sustainability plan in response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic; provide fiscal and monetary stimulus package, including support to private businesses; and propose a clear-cut strategy to keep existing jobs and create opportunities for new ones.
