Nigeria’s president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said the citizens are not lazy people and have no reason to be poor.
He made this statement on Thursday 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).
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelali, Tinubu said he will work hard to create wealth for all Nigerians.
He said; “We are not lazy people. We are richly endowed. We just need to be our brother’s keeper, and good neighbours 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.”
President Tinubu, who stated that 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. 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,” he added.
