President Bola Tinubu has assured that the nation has no reason to be poor.
The president gave the assurance on Friday while interacting with members of the Progressive Governors Forum at the State House in Abuja.
He maintained that development policies would only find full relevance in people’s lives when there is inclusivity, ownership, and sustainability.
He also assured that the country’s financial system would be re-engineered for inclusivity, effectiveness, and efficiency.
President Tinubu said, “We have no reason to be poor. Looking back on where we are coming from, where we have been, why we are facing infrastructural decay, a lack of quality and comprehensive education, as well as a lack of health facilities. We are not a cursed country, but blessed.”
He continued, “We have children of school age who are out of school. The way to promote education is to get all governors, including the opposition governors, involved in the school feeding programme.”
“We should not measure the children as statistics. We should measure their return to classrooms as our achievement. We should see economic growth in terms of value and empowerment. We should set up a committee to look into the methods,” the president stated.
