Tinubu seeks private sector support 

0 comment 1 minutes read

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu said the sustained development of Nigeria as a country requires the unwavering support of the private sector.

The president made this claim during Iftar on Thursday in Abuja with the Nigerian business community, thereby appreciating their support and promising to continue to involve them in decision making.

He described the business moguls as an integral part of his constituency.

”I would have summoned you before now, not during Ramadan, because you are a very valuable part of my constituency.

”There is no driver of the economy that is bigger than the private sector. If the private sector is not flourishing, there is no growth, no prosperity, or employment or development. No matter how flowery the speeches are, not even a mushroom will grow.

”Thank you for persevering. We are at a turning point in our economy. I do not have to do a quadratic equation to illustrate all of that to you. I just want to appreciate you for your endurance and perseverance,’’ the President said.

President Tinubu noted Nigeria’s self-belief and determination to drive economic transformation from within.

Speaking on his visit to the New York Stock Exchange in 2023, Tinubu explained how he appealed to foreign investors to consider Nigeria as a productive investment destination.

Some of the business tycoons in attendance at the meeting include: Tony Elumelu, Chairman, Heirs Holdings, Allen Onyema, CEO, Air Peace, and Dr. Stella Okoli, founder,
Emzor Pharmaceutical Company
