He also urged it to review and offer new ideas on the operations of ongoing palliative measures and recommend further immediate actions to reduce economic hardship.

“I task the committee to work with speed and produce an interim report in the next few days. I urge the chairman and other committee members to act with a sense of urgency.

“We need to address issues of the moment with the required focus.This is an important assignment. Your report will receive the full attention of my team,” the governor stated.

Responding, the Committee Chairman, Tola Faseru, who is also the Commissioner for Agriculture, assured of the resolve of the committee members to deliver on the terms of reference.
