The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has urged Nigerians to take an active role in agricultural production. 

She believed that agriculture remained the key to improving individuals’ lives.

The president’s wife stated that the commander-in-chief was taking the correct steps to help develop a more respected Nigeria in the long run.

She also urged Nigerians to be more responsible with their wealth.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu delivered the advice when she received Amina Mohammed, Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, in her office at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Wednesday.

Mrs. Tinubu noted that the various interventions of the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), especially in the areas of agriculture, empowerment, education, health, and social welfare, are to complement the efforts of President Bola  Tinubu’s administration.

“The President has made the right decisions. These decisions will help us build a Nigeria that is more respected. We should be more accountable as a people as regards our resources”.

The First Lady stated that there is a need to inspire the youth to think appropriately about the nation.

“We have to inspire them to think Nigeria first before any state.”

Furthermore, she explained that this necessitated that, through the Renewed Hope Initiative, RHI organize the #ONE NIGERIA/Unity Fabric.

“Youth between 15 and 25 years old will design the fabric depicting Nigeria and not just their state or tribe. The prize money is huge.”

Speaking on the issue of IDPs, Senator Oluremi Tinubu said the RHI has commenced the monthly food outreach program for IDPs and persons with disabilities.

“I am not being deterred. I will continue to do all I can for the people,” she said.
