President Bola Tinubu has appointed Orire Agbaje, a University of Ibadan (UI) student studying economics at the 400 level, to the presidential committee on fiscal policy and tax changes.

According to 9jaknow, Agbaje serves as the head of both the Nigerian Universities Tax Club and The Tax Club at the University of Ibadan.

Agbaje characterizes herself as “assertive and hardworking” on her LinkedIn page.

Her profile states, “At the moment, I’m an undergraduate student at the University of Ibadan majoring in International and Monetary Economics.

“My passion for calculating numbers led me to enroll in Accounting (ICAN), which also exposed me to corporate finance and taxation, which I am currently learning. Aside from my studies, I like volunteering and sports.

“I enjoy getting things done, no matter what I do. I’m a superb leader and have excellent people skills.

The group, which consists of professionals from the public and private sectors, was launched by Tinubu on Tuesday.

The committee is in charge of several facets of tax law modifications, the creation and coordination of fiscal policy, the harmonization of taxes, and revenue management.

“The Committee, in the first instance, is expected to deliver a schedule of quick reforms that can be implemented within thirty days,” stated Tinubu.

Within six months, “Critical reform measures should be recommended, and full implementation will occur within one calendar year.”

The group is led by tax and fiscal policy specialist Taiwo Oyedele.
