The Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) is seeking collaboration with the federal government on President Tinubu’s administration reforms aimed to drive economic growth.

Director general of NECA, Adewale-Smatt Oyerinde sought the synergy at the  third edition of the Nigeria Employers Summit in Abuja.

The summit was themed, “Economic Renaissance: Harnessing Government Reforms and Private Sector Agility.’’

Oyerinde said that President Bola Tinubu Administration within one year in office has introduced different fundamental reforms that would shape the growth trajectory of the country with impact on the private sector and households.

He said that the federal government needs credible organisations such as NECA to help to drive the reforms to a successful conclusion.

According to him, the summit aimed basically to discuss the reforms of the government and also  to seek private sector collaboration with the government to achieve the objectives of the reforms.

He said, “One of the aims of the summit among many others is not just to interrogate the reforms but to find a way where we can create a deeper nexus between those reforms.

It is also to create an environment where the private sector can play a major role in facilitating the achievement of the objectives of those reforms as all reforms have their own objectives, It also to let government know that much can be achieved when we deepen the collaboration with the private sector and government towards the fulfilment of the 8 point agenda of this administration”.

“Because without the private sector involvement in those reforms, much cannot be achieved, also, because new reforms or policies need new adjustment modalities and there should be gestation periods to adjust to the new reforms in the country,’ ‘he added.
