Tinubu Promises Economic Turnaround In Coming Months


President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday said the economy is taking a turn for the better and Nigerians will “all smile once again” in the coming months.

He noted that some nations have undergone worse economic experiences than Nigeria has in the past few months.

Tinubu, who was represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, made these assertions when he hosted ministers, service chiefs and other top government officials at the Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, for a Ramadan Iftar (breaking of fast).

He said, “Luckily, the economy is turning the corner. By the grace of God, in the coming months, we will have a bountiful harvest season and we shall all smile once again.

“Honourable ministers, service chiefs, distinguished ladies and gentlemen, we have crossed the rubicon and the nation is on its path to sustained growth. Some nations have gone through worse cases in the annals of their history than us.

“The President is working for this nation. He has a good heart for the nation and we have the moral duty to support him in doing whatever way we can to salvage the nation.”

Describing Ramadan as a season of forgiveness and generosity, Tinubu called for prayers for the “restoration of peace and stability in the country.”

He said the overlap of Lent and Ramadan “buttresses the fact that what binds us together exceeds what separates us.”

On his part, the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr. Lateef Fagbemi thanked the President for the gesture, assuring him of their support in ensuring the nation’s success.

He said, “Mr President, thank you for hosting us this evening…I pray that Allah will continue to enable you. No matter how wealthy you are, there are still things you ask from him.

“I don’t have to look at the crystal ball, but I know one or two. May he grant you your requests.

“About the state of nation, all of us will work and support you to ensure success. This is the ninth day, and I pray that we will all see the end of the Ramadan.”

The cabinet members and service chiefs are the President’s second set of Iftar guests. He is expected to host more such gatherings with senior government officials in the course of the holy month.
