President Bola Tinubu has outlined the need for Nigeria to dig itself out of poverty.
Speaking at the closing ceremony of a three-day cabinet retreat which took place at the State House Conference Centre, Abuja, Tinubu asked members of his cabinet and other top management staff of the civil service to work together, change the narrative of Nigeria, and bring economic prosperity to the country.
The Nigerian President noted that while poverty is not a shameful thing, people must find a way to navigate out of it. He said;
“Since we are one family and one nation, and we are in this vehicle together, to change the narrative and bring about economic prosperity of our country; are we ready?”
“Poverty is not a shameful thing but it’s not just acceptable. If you check your history, there’s a trace of poverty in it but we should find a way to dig ourselves out of it. So, it is left for you and me to navigate his ship out of poverty. We have a lot of work ahead of us.”
