Senate President Meets With IMF Chief Today

Senate President Bukola Saraki will today lead the leadership of the senate to a meeting with the managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Ms. Christine Lagarde, who is currently on a four-day working visit to Nigeria.

A statement by Saraki’s media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu said the meeting between Saraki and Lagarde at the National Assembly is expected to focus on the nation’s economy, particularly the recent global developments and their impact on Nigeria.

He noted that the falling oil prices at the international market has negatively impacted the nation’s oil revenue, external reserve and increased pressure on the Naira at the foreign exchange market.

The meeting of the senate leadership with the IMF chief is coming after a similar one with President Muhammadu Buhari and other managers of the national economy.
