By December, Tinubu promises an economic turnaround


Nigerians should anticipate a “roar back to glory” in the country’s economy by December 2024, according to President Bola Tinubu.

In order to accomplish national development goals, he also urged greater cooperation and unity of purpose between the Federal Government, state governors, and National Assembly members.

"The state of our economy has improved. The economy is going to soar back to prominence in the upcoming months. During his courtesy visit to Lagos on Friday, Tinubu told state governors and the National Assembly leadership, “I hope we will have cause to celebrate by December.”

Details of Friday’s discussions were released by the President’s Special Advisor on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, in a statement headed “President Tinubu to governors and national assembly leadership: let us unite to make Nigeria greater.”

Speaking on the President’s behalf, Vice-President Kashim Shettima urged cooperation in order to advance the country and voiced hope about Nigeria’s economic recovery.

Come together, support our leader, and let’s elevate this country to new heights. I hope we’ll have something to celebrate by December. Shettima remarked, “Let’s get together to elevate the country.”

He mentioned the 27-governor assembly, the NASS leadership, and a few previous governors in Lagos as examples of Tinubu’s ability to bring people together across racial and religious divides.

The 700-kilometer Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway is being supported by the Nigeria Governors Forum Chairman, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, who described it as a massive project that will have a big influence on the country when it is done.

He mentioned two of Tinubu’s initiatives to stabilize the economy and enhance living conditions for Nigerians: the stabilization of the currency rate and the decline in food costs.

AbdulRazaq praised the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare for supporting 8,800 primary healthcare centers and credited these advances to the President’s actions.

"Your efforts are greatly appreciated since the ship is turning gradually. We have observed a decline in the naira’s value relative to the US dollar.

The price of food is declining. The harvest during the dry season is about to begin.

The governor declared, “There is light at the end of the tunnel and things are getting better.”

As a result, he pushed President Tinubu to keep working toward financial stability. In addition, the governor expressed gratitude to the federal government for helping the states, particularly with the distribution of grains to help with food shortages.

“We are here to support you, and we appreciate the support you are providing for the sub-nationals,” he remarked. Grains are being delivered by trucks traveling throughout the country. Both the majority of the states and I have received.

“Food prices are declining because of what you are doing—those who were hoarding food items are now releasing them.”

Governor AbdulRazaq reaffirmed the governors’ support for the President’s policies and promised to keep assisting the federal government in promoting prosperity and progress across the country.

The team, which was led by Vice President Kashim Shettima, also comprised Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, Speaker of the House of Representatives Tajudeen Abbas, and Senate President Godswill Akpabio.
