Executive, Legislature collaboration will secure national de

The President Bola Tinubu, has called for unity of purpose and collaboration between the federal, state governments and members of the National Assembly to achieve national development goals.

Tinubu made the appeal while receiving state governors and the leadership of the National Assembly in Lagos on Friday.

The delegation led by Vice-President Kashim Shettima, included Senate President Godswill Akpabio, House of Representatives speaker Tajudeen Abbas as well as Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State and Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, among others.

Speaking on behalf of the President, Shettima expressed optimism about Nigeria’s economic resurgence and called for collective efforts to propel the nation forward.

He urged unity and collaboration among all stakeholders to achieve shared prosperity and promised a brighter future for the nation.

“Let us unite, rally around our leader, and catapult this nation to a greater pedestal. By December, I hope we will have cause to celebrate. Let us coalesce to take the nation to a greater pedestal,”  Shettima said.

Emphasising Tinubu’s role as a unifying leader transcending ethnic and religious lines, the Vice-President noted that the gathering of 27 governors in Lagos, along with the leadership of the National Assembly and some former governors, bears the testimony of a detribalised leader.

‘’This gathering cuts across ethnic, religious, and political lines. Here, we have Pastor Eno of Akwa Ibom and Father Hyacinth of Benue, and as the President was seated, he was asking, ‘Where is Wammako, where is Yari’?

“That is the hallmark of true leadership. What binds us together supersedes whatever it is that may divide us.’’

‘’The future of the black man rests on Nigeria to make or mar. Our economy has turned the corner. By the coming months, the economy will roar back to glory,’’ the Vice-President said.
