The Kogi state government has constituted an economic and advisory council (EAC).

In a statement on Thursday, Kingsley Fanwo, commissioner for information, said the council is expected to make decision and evaluate the economy of the state.

According to him, the council will also look into new perspectives and innovative approaches on economic development.

“The rationale behind setting up the EAC is to provide evidence-driven decision making and rigorous evaluation of the economy,” Fanwo said.


“The Council will systematically take stock of the most recent trends in economic development, applied economic methods, poverty analytics, evaluation methods, and modelling, measuring, and evaluating development interventions.

“An all-embracing purpose of the Economic Advisory Council will be to sharpen the Kogi State Government’s analytical methods and capacity in support of continuing development effectiveness.

“The EAC will provide advice to KGSG on issues related to growth and development at the Local and State Government levels. Convening experts in an advisory role will serve to inform the KGSG on the success of its economic program development and measurement of results, shape future policy decisions and methodology, and enhance economic programs and economic growth.


“As a State, we are proud to unleash Kogites who have excelled nationally and globally on the current economic reality with the aim of bringing our finest brains together to move the State forward with the ultimate goal being the need to reduce poverty and underdevelopment in our dear state.”
