He said, “We are gathered here today because of the economic situation of the country and the way forward. The issue of our economy is important to us.

“There’s need for the Federal Government to work on how to increase our Gross Domestic Production (GDP).

“We have put heads together to ensure that things go on smoothly. We are concerned, most importantly, about the Niger Delta region following the increase in oil output, irrespective of politicians’ moves to sabotage the economy.

“As you know that this region produces what feeds this country, we must make sure the nation gets it right by fixing the economy quickly before it gets out of hands.

“It’s clear that there is no way we can survive without an increase in our productions so that our exports will outshoot our imports.
