One of the members of the Presidential Committee on Fiscal Policy and Tax Reforms, which President Bola Tinubu inaugurated at the Presidential Villa, is Orire Agbaje, an economics student at the University of Ibadan studying at the 400-level.
Agbaje was chosen with the help of seasoned tax professionals and powerful private sector stakeholders. He is in charge of streamlining the country's tax system in order to increase revenue sources.
This fits in with President Tinubu's plan for quick change because he expects reforms to happen right away within a 30-day window.
Guiding this transformative committee is Taiwo Oyedele, a venerable luminary in the realm of tax and fiscal policy.
Agbaje’s dynamic profile captivates attention. Her academic pursuit is underscored by her leadership of the Nigerian Universities Tax Club, Students Finance Club, Campus Ambassador, Edubridge Academy, and Finance certifications from the Corporate Finance Institute.
Beyond academia, she also plays a role in the prestigious 2023 Nigeria Higher Education Foundation Scholars Program.
A glance at her LinkedIn profile revealed Agbaje’s ardor for numerical analysis, one that has propelled her academic journey in the realms of accounting and taxation.
