1701574181 Bola Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu has admitted that Nigerians are facing insecurity and economic challenges.

Tinubu, however, assured that those challenges would not defeat Nigerians.

He spoke last night at the Presidential Villa in Abuja while hosting National Assembly members for Iftar to break Ramadan fast.

Tinubu commended the Armed Forces for their sacrifice and vowed to uphold Nigeria’s sovereignty.

He said, “Yes, we are challenged. Security challenges around us, our armed forces are trying, but we will not allow them to undermine the integrity and value of our armed forces.

“We will continue to encourage and fight for our sovereignty, our individual right to exist, and to banish poverty from our society.

“The national challenge we face will be over; the economic challenge—we’re about to turn the corner. Our revenue is improving, and you can see it reflected in the subnationals. All we have to do is manage ourselves much better.

“There is light at the end of the tunnel, and Nigeria will smile again. I know you share bread without butter; maybe this time around, we’ll put butter beside your bread.

“The challenges of security will be over; they can’t defeat us; we have to rescue our country. It’s with this freedom and strong determination that we believe we can bring about prosperity for everyone.

“We’re entitled to it, and I assure you, you will partake in the prosperity.”
