His postulations are geared towards investor friendly policies that would galvanise local and international investors to revamp the economy.

 

Dr Orabuchi is an avid believer in Nigeria making a paradigm shift from a mono economy to a diversified economy where industrial growth and expansion would shore up the revenue base of the nation.

 

And also, delving into the political arena in the face of the lingering, seemingly “gloomy economy,” the don believes in a total overhaul of the current local government system in Nigeria.

 

He also believes that a lot depends on state governors, to bolster the revenue base of their states.
