Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has launched a 60-day action plan to improve the business climate in Africa’s biggest economy struggling with recession, his office said on Tuesday.

“There are improvements which we expect to see at our ports. Improvements at our airports, improvements at the seaports, improvements in immigration visas,” Osinbajo said in a statement.

Last month, President Muhammadu Buhari put Osinbajo in charge while he is on sick leave in Britain.
