President Bola Tinubu says his administration will continue to work tirelessly to revamp the nation’s economy.
The president spoke on Wednesday during a town hall meeting with traditional rulers, chairpersons of LGAs, Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) and other political office holders in Lagos state.
Tinubu said under his renewed hope administration, the country is undergoing a process of financial re-engineering.
He appealed to Nigerians to be patient with the reforms of his administration, adding that they are bound to transform the economy of the nation for the better.
“The financial re-engineering of our country is ongoing. We are determined to deliver Nigeria safely through the tunnel of hope, stability, and economic prosperity,” Tinubu said.
“Nigeria is in good hands. The team is working, and we will work hard to give you the best economy and the best opportunities that you can imagine.”
Acknowledging concerns raised at the meeting, Tinubu explained that the complexities of state matters have limited his opportunities to frequently interact with some of his long-time friends and constituents in Lagos.
”For those having difficulty seeing me, kindly note that this job is monumental. It is not a one-man job. It is a collective task, and you have to be able to listen, decipher, tolerate, and sometimes what you do not expect will happen,” he said.
“As I was getting ready this morning to come here, news of the death of Governor Rotimi Akeredeolu of Ondo came in, as well as the passing of former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba.
”Power is transient. Only Almighty Allah gives power, and only him will take it. There is the value of life and the goodness in what we do.
“The salt of goodness is a multiplier of other good things that we must cherish. Not necessarily for us, but for our children and grandchildren.”
