“I Will Restore Nigeria from Vested Interests,” Declares Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu expressed his determination to rescue the country from vested interests that have hindered its progress.

He made this commitment during a meeting with the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women Leaders from the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, led by the APC National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu, at the presidential villa in Abuja.

President Tinubu assured the women that his administration would prioritize security, healthcare, and industrialization. In a statement issued by Dele Alake, Special Adviser to the President (Special Duties, Communications, and Strategy), the President emphasized that numerous policies and programs were already being implemented to positively impact the citizens.

One such policy he highlighted was the Students’ Loan Scheme, which aims to ensure a stable academic calendar for students in tertiary institutions by providing scholarships for their four-year education.

The President underscored the paramount importance of security, acknowledging the disproportionate burden women bear in times of insecurity. He assured the women leaders that discussions on security matters were taking place at the highest level and that immediate action would be taken to address the issue.

President Tinubu also expressed his commitment to revamping healthcare facilities and promoting industrialization to create employment opportunities for their children and relatives.

President Tinubu commended the women leaders for their support during the campaigns and elections, recognizing their resilience in overcoming obstacles such as fuel scarcity and economic challenges. He promised that their efforts would not go unnoticed, stating that they all deserved recognition and rewards for their hard work.

As the newly appointed ECOWAS Chairman, Tinubu acknowledged that his new role would bring additional responsibilities but assured the women that it would only serve as further motivation to work harder for a better Nigeria. He emphasized his administration’s open-door policy and the importance of national unity.

The President also encouraged the women leaders to embrace individuals from other political parties who are now willing to contribute to the country’s progress.

Tinubu urged the APC women leaders to educate the citizens about the policies and programs of his administration, assuring them that the current difficulties were temporary. He emphasized that the benefits of removing subsidies would be directed towards improving the lives of Nigerians and curbing corruption.

During the meeting, APC National Woman Leader Edu congratulated President Tinubu on his electoral victory, commended his administration’s policies, and recognized his appointment as ECOWAS Chairman.

She highlighted the President’s outstanding achievements as the former Governor of Lagos State, particularly in economic development and infrastructure. Edu also appealed to the President to consider more women for government appointments.

Overall, President Tinubu’s meeting with the APC women leaders demonstrated his commitment to addressing key issues affecting Nigeria’s progress, emphasizing the importance of unity and inclusivity in his administration’s approach.
