President Bola Tinubu has promised that Nigerians will continue to reap the rewards of his administration’s new economic reforms after the time of sacrifice needed to transform the nation.
The President said this on Thursday in Lagos at a reception in his honour by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
He said the rewards would be replicated in all state and local governments of the country through the active participation of all three tiers of government.
Mr Tinubu added that his government would work tirelessly to ensure that the country is brought back from the economic brinks to that of economic resilience.
The president commended the governors and the members of the National Assembly present at the event, adding that the solidarity must continue for the betterment of Nigerians.
“We will work together in an open-door policy that will bring Nigeria from the brink back to a resilient economy; be ready. You governors, I know what I am going to do from Monday, Tuesday up,” stated the Nigerian leader. “I want us to be partners so that we can rescue our country and make it whole again.”
Mr Tinubu stressed that “we shall receive the joy of giving, the joy of perseverance, the joy of resilience and endurance. You will see the reward.”
He assured them that Nigeria would be “prosperous for us.”
“I am happy that the legislature, the executive arms of government, are here,” the president stated. “I appreciate it, and I will continue to appreciate it more when we work together to dissect the possible economic prospects of our nation in favour of our children.”
The president also said he would not allow the country’s huge population to be disappointed because it was not an alternative for him.
“The reason you voted for me is to see changes that will affect not only you but your children, and we are set to realise that by re-engineering the economy to exploit its full potential,” Mr Tinubu explained.
