Nigeria’s Economy Must Recover for Good —Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu on Friday vowed to ensure that the Nigerian economy recovers for good and the greatest number of Nigerians.

He gave the pledge at the Presidential Villa, Abuja in a meeting with the Board of Trustees of the All Progressives (APC) Professionals Forum led by former Bauchi State governor, Mallam Isa Yuguda.

He reassured Nigerians that no stone would be left unturned in his administration’s multifarious efforts to stimulate the economy and make it work for the greatest good of all Nigerians.

The President stated: “This economy must recover for the good and greatest number of Nigerians, and we are seriously committed to seeing through a change for the better,” he said.

To steadily ensure measured growth and enhanced public enlightenment on policy outcomes, President Tinubu said every effort across sectors would be documented and periodically reviewed for performance verification and public presentation.

“So far, we have taken some baby steps and pushed some aggressive positions,” the President told the APC professionals, who had earlier pledged their support for the reforms.

While thanking President Tinubu for his bold interventions on the economy, the former Bauchi State governor said more than two million people have been registered as professionals in different fields since 2018 and are ready to provide structures for mobilisation and sensitisation on government policies.

“Foreign capital is a coward that does not move into unsafe areas, so with your successful interventions so far, we look forward to better security that will attract investors,” Yuguda added.

Speaking to correspondents later, Yuguda said that President Tinubu had his reasons for nominating nine former governors into his cabinet.

According to him, even though it was not the best choice, Tinubu believed that they had something to offer to the overall success of the administration.
