President Bola Tinubu has shouldered full responsibility for the economic challenges facing Nigerians, expressing confidence in the nation’s resilience and assuring citizens of its survival. Speaking at the residence of Pa Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, Ondo State, on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, Tinubu addressed Afenifere leaders, reiterating his commitment to steering Nigeria towards economic and social prosperity.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, Tinubu emphasized that he embraces the challenges inherent in leadership and refrains from complaints. He stated, “Nigeria will survive the current economic challenges. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I requested the job, and I am not complaining about it. I take full responsibility.”

Highlighting the government’s agenda of inclusivity, Tinubu underscored his determination to navigate Nigeria through its current economic predicaments. He reassured Nigerians that despite the hurdles, the nation remains steadfast in meeting its international obligations and ensuring economic stability.

Tinubu outlined his approach to reforming Nigeria, emphasizing the importance of fiscal responsibility and true federalism. He stressed the need for fairness and equity in governance, aiming to build a nation that benefits all its citizens.

However, he credited perseverance and strategic leadership for Lagos’s emergence as the fifth-largest economy in Africa. He urged for wisdom in managing Nigeria’s current economic circumstances and emphasized responsible growth.

“I campaigned for this office to serve Nigeria’s interests, and I was elected. Some said I would not last in the tribunal and came up with all sorts of predictions, but even when in court, I remained focused,” Tinubu declared.

Addressing economic exploitation and selfish interests, Tinubu expressed determination to overhaul Nigeria’s financial system and ensure sustainable development. He vowed to curb exploitative practices and foster a conducive environment for economic growth.
