In a way, everything that we will do to improve business opportunities for everyone, where we were targeting higher productivity and competitiveness of Nigerian economy, will feed to improved income level for Nigerians.
When you have better income level, you will be able to afford basic things of life. We will focus on improving our health system. Our health system today discriminates between the wealthy and the poor.
