In one year, Nigeria has witnessed significant progress under Tinubu– FG

 


The Federal Government of Nigeria, on Wednesday, said the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led government has achieved several milestones in the various sectors.

 

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator George Akume stated this at a World Press Conference, titled ‘Ministerial Sectoral Updates’, to herald Tinubu administration’s One Year Anniversary celebration.

 

Also at the press conference were the Honourable Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, as well as the Honourable Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Senator Atiku Bagudu.

 

The SGF disclosed that under President Tinubu’s stewardship within his first year in office, the country had witnessed significant strides in various sectors of our economy.

 

He said the essence of the Ministerial Sector Updates was to render accountability to Nigerians by promoting the accomplishments of the present administration within its first year in office and to reassure the citizens that Government would remain focused and committed to the implementation of the Renewed Hope Agenda for positive impact on the socio-economic life of Nigerians.

 

“Through prudent fiscal policies and strategic investments, the Nigerian economy has shown resilience and potential for growth.

 

“The administration’s focus on infrastructure development, job creation and economic diversification has laid the foundation for sustainable progress and prosperity for all Nigerians,” he stated.

 

Akume identified other key areas of success story by the current administration to include: “The Presidential accent to the 2023 Electricity Bill, a move that dismantled monopolistic control over electricity generation, transmission and distribution at the national level and granted authority to State Governments, Corporations and individuals to generate, distribute and transmit electricity, thus decentralising the power sector;

 

“Accent to the passage into law of the Nigeria Data Protection Bill 2023 that established a legal framework for safeguarding personal information and promoting data protection practices in Nigeria;

 

“The challenging but very necessary Removal of Fuel Subsidy, a longstanding policy notorious for fostering corruption, inefficiency and imposing significant fiscal strain on the government annually, and primarily benefiting the affluent and smugglers, rather than effectively aiding the general populace.”

 

He affirmed that Tinubu’s first year in office had been “a testament of sorts and goes to show the unwavering commitment and resilience of this Administration towards serving the Nigerian people with diligence, integrity and dedication.

 

“Despite the daunting challenges from all angles, President Tinubu has maintained his calm and demonstrated exemplary leadership qualities, thereby guiding our nation with vision and foresight.

 

“Government has implemented significant economic reforms aimed at stabilising our economy and fostering sustainable growth. Key among these is the introduction of policies that have attracted foreign investments, reduced inflation, and boosted job creation across various sectors.

 

“Mr. President’s commitment to enhancing our nation’s infrastructure is also evident in the completion and ongoing execution of numerous projects, notable among which are the extensive road networks, improved rail systems, and the modernization of our ports, which are vital for boosting trade and connectivity.

 

“In the same vein, recognizing the importance of human capital development, the present Administration has made substantial investments in healthcare and education.

 

“The launch of new healthcare facilities and the upgrade of existing ones, along with reforms in our educational system, underscores Government’s dedication to the well-being and future of our citizens.

 

“More importantly, ensuring the safety and security of all Nigerians remains a top priority of the Government.

 

“It has therefore strengthened our security apparatus, enhanced intelligence gathering, and fostered greater collaboration among security agencies to address the multifaceted challenges of security across the country,” he said.

 

Akume also revealed that the current administration had rolled out several social intervention programs aimed at alleviating poverty and empowering the vulnerable segments of the society.

 

According to him, “These initiatives have provided financial assistance, skill acquisition opportunities, and improved access to essential services.

 

“Furthermore, the Government’s commitment to good governance and the rule of law has strengthened our democratic institutions and enhanced transparency and accountability in governance.

 

“His unwavering resolve to combat corruption and promote ethical leadership has earned the admiration and support of the Nigerian people.”

 

While noting that the act of nation building was not for the government alone, the SGF rallied the citizens to show “collective responsibility and commitment to building a stronger and more prosperous Nigeria.”
