Tinubu Optimistic About Economic Recovery, Calls for Unity

President Bola Tinubu has expressed confidence that Nigeria’s economy will bounce back in the coming months. He emphasized the need for unity and collaboration among government entities to achieve national development goals.

Tinubu made these remarks in Lagos while meeting with state governors and the leadership of the National Assembly. Speaking through Vice President Kashim Shettima, Tinubu highlighted Nigeria’s pivotal role in the future of the black race.

The delegation, which included Senate President Godswill Akpabio, Speaker of the House of Representatives Tajudeen Abbas, and Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, discussed strategies for economic resurgence and national development.

Tinubu urged unity and collaboration among stakeholders to ensure shared prosperity and promised a brighter future under his leadership. He called for collective efforts to propel the nation forward and expressed hope for celebrations by December.

Vice President Shettima praised Tinubu’s unifying leadership, noting the diverse representation at the meeting as a testament to Tinubu’s inclusive approach transcending ethnic and religious boundaries.

“This gathering cuts across ethnic, religious, and political lines. Here, we have Pastor Eno of Akwa Ibom and Father Hyacinth of Benue, and as the President was seated, he was asking, ‘Where is Wammako, where is Yari’? That is the hallmark of true leadership. What binds us together supersedes whatever it is that may divide us.”

The future of the black man rests on Nigeria to make or mar. Our economy has turned the corner. By the coming months, the economy will roar back to glory,” the Vice-President said.

Senate President Akpabio commended the state governors for emulating President Tinubu’s leadership style, characterized by listening to diverse voices and consulting widely with the people, irrespective of political affiliations.

“The governors are doing well. I can say so because I have been there before,” Senator Akpabio said.

Expressing confidence in President Tinubu’s leadership, Akpabio noted that the President enjoys the broad support of Nigerians across political divides.

“As you coast home to victory for a second term, may all the governors seated here also coast home to a second term victory in their states,” Senate President Akpabio prayed.

Governor AbdulRazaq expressed support for the 700km Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway, describing it as a huge project that will have a significant impact on the nation when completed.

He commended the President’s efforts in stabilizing the economy and improving living conditions, highlighting the positive developments in the country, which include the stabilization of the exchange rate and decreasing food prices.

He attributed these improvements to the President’s initiatives and also lauded the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s funding for 8,800 primary healthcare centres.

“We commend your efforts because the ship is gradually turning. We have seen how the exchange rate of the naira against the dollar is coming down. The cost of food is coming down. The dry season harvest is commencing soon. Things are getting better, and there is light at the end of the tunnel,” the Governor said.

He urged President Tinubu to persevere in his efforts towards achieving economic stability.

The governor also expressed gratitude for the support provided by the Federal Government to states, particularly in distributing grains to alleviate food shortages.

”We are here to support you, and we also thank you for the support that you are giving to the sub-nationals. Trucks are wheeling up across the nation, distributing grains. I have received, and most of the states have.

“Because of what you are doing, those who are hoarding food items are releasing them, and that is why the prices of food are coming down,” he said.

Governor AbdulRazaq reiterated the governors’ commitment to supporting the President’s initiatives and pledged to continue complementing the efforts of the federal government in driving progress and prosperity across the nation.
