Vice President Kashim Shettima has said the economic policies of the Bola Tinubu administration are already yielding the desired results, especially with more allocations available to states from the federation accounts.
This was part of his remarks on Tuesday when he appeared as the Special Guest of Honour at the opening of the 16th Annual Banking and Finance Conference, themed “Nigeria’s Economic Growth and Empowerment: The Role of The Financial Services Industry.”
His words: “Regarding the outcomes of recent government policies and programmes, I must announce with pride that our decisions are already yielding tangible results, with both state and federal governments now enjoying more substantial allocations.
“These funds promise a direct and positive impact on the lives of our citizens. Without the serially unaccounted fuel subsidies, we can now redirect our savings towards more deserving causes.”
According to him, a stronger partnership with experts in the banking and finance industry can help turn the economy around in record time.
His remark was from his presentation titled “Our Priorities in a Post-Pandemic World.
Shettima noted: “We must now do what pessimists may regard as impossible: turning the economy around in record time. We seek your partnership in getting this done. We cannot take your support for granted.”
Continuing, he said: “This journey towards economic rejuvenation is not one to be undertaken in isolation. It is a call to forge robust partnerships with strategic nations and multilateral organisations, for in unity, Nigeria can reposition itself as a formidable, globally competitive partner.”
