The Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) has announced the appointment of Dr. Tayo Aduloju as its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Aduloju, the NESG’s current Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Senior Fellow for Economic Policy, Strategy, and Competitiveness, will take over on 1 January 2024.

He will succeed Laoye Jaiyeola.

A statement from the NESG said the group took a quantum leap under Jaiyeola by utilizing technology and data to promote the inclusive and sustainable growth of Nigeria’s economy.

It added that Aduloju is coming with exceptional vision.

“As the incoming CEO, Dr. Tayo Aduloju brings exceptional vision and expertise to NESG,” the statement read.

“A distinguished scholar-practitioner, economist, policy entrepreneur, and strategist, he has contributed significantly to various reform initiatives, spanning aviation, agriculture, finance, governance, maritime, and public service sectors.

“Aduloju’s experience includes advising former Presidents Yar’Adua and Obasanjo, as well as spearheading the NESG’s national public-private leadership forums and promoting sustainable development,” it added.

The NESG was established in 1996 as a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing economic reform in Nigeria.

It has become the leading platform for public-private dialogue in Nigeria.
