Bola Tinubu, the President of Nigeria, stated that Nigerians, known for their hard work, should not be in poverty.
On Thursday, September 14, President Tinubu said this in Abuja when he received a high-powered 62-man delegation comprising leaders from both the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
A statement released by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelali, quoted the President as saying;
“We are not lazy people. We are richly endowed. We just need to be our brother’s keeper, and good neighbors to one another. I am not a President that will give excuses. I will work hard for our nation with purpose, determination, and dedication to create wealth for all Nigerians. We have no reason to be poor! We will not look back, we will run aggressively forward.
Today, we may be swimming against the tide. But the waves will soon propel us forward from behind. We will achieve the goals and dreams of our forefathers. I am inspired by the nation of people I now lead”.
The Nigerian leader who said people trust him to turn the tide, assured of his government’s resolve to fulfill its promises to the country.
“I am the Captain and Chief Salesman of the country. We have to reverse the trend and achieve possibilities within a short period of time,” President Tinubu said. “Our people have high expectations for us. I pledge to work hard, and I pray to God to put me on the right path, not to disappoint Nigerians.” the statement read,
