Economic hardship: The worst is over – Shettima

Vice President Kashim Shettima, on Wednesday, indicated that the worst is over amid the prevailing economic situation.


This is even as Shettima hailed the role of youths and their creativity in shaping Nigeria’s future, promising that the federal government will provide the enabling environment for them to thrive.


He spoke on Wednesday during the official launch of the National Design and Innovation Competition at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.


On the prevailing economic situation, the vice president declared: “The worst is over,” noting that the naira would continue to stabilise in the coming weeks and months, as the President Bola Tinubu administration tackles issues like food security, nutrition and insecurity.


“President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is making robust plans to see that all issues of insecurity are addressed.”


Shettima emphasised that the future belongs to the youth and the creatives, adding that innovation drives manufacturing and Nigeria is brimming with possibilities and opportunities.


The vice president assured the federal government’s support for youth aspirations and entrepreneurship, commending the financial institutions’ backing of the creative sector.


He further announced plans to include young innovators in the government’s $617.7 million Investment in Digital and Creative Enterprises (i-DICE) programme.
