”We are meeting our obligations to the international community. To lenders, we have not defaulted, and we are not going to default. We are navigating the twists and bends on the road to Nigeria’s prosperity."

Tinubu begs Nigerians to be patient

Furthermore, Tinubu said he acknowledged the understanding of all Nigerians at this difficult moment but assured them that their patience and perseverance will not be fruitless.

His words:

“The economic challenges we have endured since assuming office are not new to me. As the former governor of Lagos State, I faced similar calls for my resignation. But, through perseverance, Lagos emerged as the fifth largest economy in the entire continent of Africa. We must manage this moment with wisdom and grow Nigeria responsibly.
