The minister said:

"While Mr President is passing through sleepless nights on how to solve the problems of a very bad inherited economy, Nigerians should support him and also support themselves.”

Expectations from Tinubu

Legit.ng reports that protectionist policies and foreign currency interventions under predecessor Muhammadu Buhari spooked investors.

Tinubu vowed at his swearing-in on May 29, 2023, to expand the economy by at least six percent a year, lift barriers to investment, and create jobs while also unifying the exchange rate.

More than a third of the country’s population is currently unemployed and Nigerians expect Tinubu, 71, to create jobs, and fix the free-falling economy in line with his campaign promises.
