President Bola Tinubu has received assurances of support from the leadership of the 10th National Assembly and state governors regarding his Renewed Hope agenda.
During a Sallah courtesy visit in Lagos on Wednesday, Senate President Godswill Akpabio, a delegation of senators, governors, and business leaders expressed their support for Tinubu’s comprehensive campaign agenda, which encompasses various aspects of national life, such as the economy, healthcare, education, youth empowerment, and international relations.
Within the initial days of his administration, the President has demonstrated a clear roadmap through his decisions. These decisions and policies are poised to transform the country’s fortunes positively. The National Assembly will expedite legislative processes to align with such swift actions.
“I want to assure Nigerians that any measures aimed at improving their living standards will receive full support from the National Assembly,” stated Akpabio.
Akpabio also emphasized that the assembly would hit the ground running upon resumption to facilitate the enactment of laws for the betterment of the country and its citizens.
Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State added that the states would match the Federal Government’s pace in nation-building. He acknowledged Tinubu’s commitment to revamping economic, legislative, and judicial systems for the greater good and expressed the readiness of the states to contribute their efforts to this endeavor.
Uzodinma further highlighted the positive impact of the President’s decisions, such as the removal of subsidies and the discontinuation of the multiple exchange rate regime, which have already started to benefit the economy. He called on Nigerians to have confidence in the new administration and work towards unity, peace, and stability to achieve greater heights internationally.
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State affirmed that state governments would reciprocate the people-oriented policies of the Federal Government. He praised Tinubu’s recent decisions and policies as a guiding path for states.
“As we have witnessed in Lagos State, where Tinubu served as governor and set a remarkable model for other states, similar achievements will be replicated at the federal level. Lagos will continue to embrace the commendable programs and policies of the Federal Government as a blueprint for realizing our ideal society,” said Sanwo-Olu.
Notable figures present during the visit included Chief of Staff Femi Gbajabiamila, Secretary to the Federal Government George Akume, and NNPCL Group Chief Executive Officer Mele Kyari. Former governors of Kano and Kebbi, Abdullahi Ganduje and Abubakar Bagudu, respectively, were also in attendance.
