“Whichever government comes must implement the Vision 2020 until we achieve it. We are in constant discussion with the National Assembly and we have a draft and after further discussion and presentation at the Federal Executive Council, the Attorney General will forward it to the National Assembly," the minister said.
He said that obstacles that prevented the country from realising its potential had been identified in the Vision 2020 document which had also proffered possible solutions.
“But that is why we are taking it further. A lot of work has been done in terms of implementation strategy. We are already working on the first set of the three four-year development plans that will drive the vision,” Usman said.
The minister added that the blueprint contained components to be implemented by federal and state governments as well as the private sector. The economic blueprint had identified all the key elements that have contributed to the high cost of doing business in Nigeria.
