Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has recommended that the Federal Government alleviate the current economic challenges in the nation by increasing the salaries of workers.
He made this suggestion during a public lecture held on Thursday at the State House Banquet Hall in Abuja, commemorating Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary.
Furthermore, he advised the Federal Government to enhance the collaboration among the various branches of government to deliver democratic benefits to the Nigerian populace.
During a lecture focused on the “Renewed Hope Agenda” of the Tinubu administration, with the theme, ‘Actualizing the vision of renewed hope for socio-economic development through effective leadership’, guest speaker Dr. Goke Adegoroye commended President Bola Tinubu for the strides taken in reconfiguring governance and reviving the economy. However, he urged the administration to prioritize key aspects of the Renewed Hope Agenda to ensure its widespread impact across different sectors of the economy.
In the meantime, Vice President Sen. Kashim Shettima reassured Nigerians that their sacrifices would not go unrewarded, emphasizing the commitment of the administration to create a nation where each citizen’s economic independence is assured, without the need to rely on unspecified handouts for their livelihood.
“Today, we gather to honour Nigeria’s journey to redefine its destiny. Today, we stand on the precipice of history to reflect upon a nation that has defied the predictions of doomsayers, a nation that has become the metaphor of resilience.
“Over the past 63 years, we have not only survived but thrived because of our collective resolve, our commitment to progress, and the enduring spirit of unity that binds us together from Aba, down through Ogbomosho to Zaria, despite the conspiracies of minor vested interests,” the Vice President said.
He emphasized that this anniversary provides Nigeria with another chance to recognize the enduring cross-regional connections that have preserved its status as Africa’s most populous nation and largest economy. He further emphasized, “We must understand that the commitment we made to the Nigerian people for the future is not merely a political ploy for electoral support.”
The Vice President highlighted that the destiny of a prominent nation is not shaped by the mere existence of socio-economic difficulties but by the genuine intention, sincerity, and creative ideas of its leaders, along with their unwavering dedication to putting these ideas into action.
He said: “We cannot renew the hope of the nation unless we deliver on our promise to drive food security and eradicate poverty. We cannot foster economic growth and nurture job creation unless we facilitate access to capital, enhance national security, and optimize the business environment for our enterprises.
“We are going to uphold the rule of law and fight corruption to design the Nigeria of our dream. We can’t achieve any of these unless each citizen remains a strategic partner in pursuit of our ultimate national interests.”
