President Bola Tinubu has pleaded with Nigerians to put up with any suffering they may be experiencing at the moment as a result of the strict policies implemented by his administration.
The President did, however, add that the benefits will soon become apparent and that the sufferings were only momentary.
Speaking on behalf of Minister of State for Agriculture Sabi Abdullahi, President Tinubu stated that his administration’s strict economic policies would soon begin to show benefits on Tuesday at the green economy conference in Minna, the capital of Niger state.
He begged Nigerians to be understanding.
Tinubu said he is “aware of all the difficulties occasioned” by some of the tough decisions that have to be taken by his government.
“Give us your understanding and as we make this powerful sacrifice, the gains of our sacrifice are just a short minute or short hours away from us.
“Very soon, we shall begin to reap the benefits of these tough decisions as our economy will bounce back and for us,” Abdullahi said.
On the theme of the summit which is ‘Sustainable future: Harnessing green assets and innovation for Niger state’s prosperity’, the Minister noted that President Tinubu is committed to a green economy.
He said “Permit me to say, to show the President’s commitment to the enthronement of a green economy, just yesterday (Monday) at the federal executive council, a new solid mineral development policy was approved.
“And this policy will definitely align and benefit the green economy that you (Umar Bago, Niger governor) have envisioned for Niger state because the policy is emphasising removing all forms of illegality that are desecrating and destroying our environment.
“It also intends to ensure a new principle of resource-use efficiency while allowing people who will want to operate legally to do so in the mining sector.”
