What is the new name of Nigeria?

The president in the video said Nigeria can drive the economy from within, adding that he told investors at the UK stock exchange to consider Nigeria a prime destination for their investment.

President Tinubu said:

“At the end of my remarks, I told them we only want them to show their face and diversify Nigeria’s economy, not as if we cannot do it ourselves."

How Tinubu's economic policy affects Nigerians

Tinubu's video went viral amid the rising cost of living in the country following the removal of the fuel subsidy and the floating of the currency at the inception of his administration.

Some concerned Nigerians, including the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), have criticised Tinubu for running an economy that would favour the international community, rather than thinking about the people.
