President Bola Tinubu says his administration will not relent in addressing corruption and other challenges facing the country.
According to a statement by Ajuri Ngelale, a presidential spokesperson, Tinubu disclosed this on Monday after meeting the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, led by its President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh.
President Tinubu called on Christian leaders to support the administration’s ongoing fight against corruption by encouraging Nigerians to have a change of mindset on money-related matters.
We have no other country but Nigeria. If you do not preach the sermon of understanding, tolerance, perseverance, and hope for Nigerians, you are damaging the country, and nobody will help us repair it.
“Let us dialogue because public condemnation of a nation does not make any citizen good. We must admonish Nigerians to have a change of mindset and not to make money our god or master. We will get to the Promised Land, and Nigeria will flourish.
“We are here to listen, and if you observe any inadequacies in my government, let us know. I am here today because of your prayers and the will of God Almighty.
“What I have challenged myself to do each day is to be fair to all Nigerians. I have had several criticisms, including the rationale behind the size of my cabinet.
“If you want efficient, mobile, and resourceful people, we must give people a load they can carry. If you combine too many ministries to save money, you will have a future of non-performance and no results.
“Nigeria needs to turn the corner to grow, and we must give people challenges they can manage, and that is what we are doing,” the President firmly stated.
