Don’t leave politics for politicians alone – VP, Shettima urges Nigerians

Vice-President Kashim Shettima has called on Nigerians not to leave politics to politicians alone, asking for a synergy between the government and business leaders.

The Vice President said the partnership is necessary to propel Nigeria’s economic growth and prosperity.

He said open dialogue, shared insights, and collaborative work between the public and private sectors were panacea to developing solutions tailored towards Nigeria’s realities.

The Vice president made the call at the Heirs Holdings Group Directors’ Annual Summit Dinner in Abuja, on Friday, and called for synergy between the political class and economic stakeholders, noting that the two spheres are not opposites but complementary forces vital for national stability and progress.

“Politics is too important to be left to the politicians, and enterprises that define our economic destination are too important to be left to the businessmen alone to develop,” he said.

While aligning with President Bola Tinubu’s economic agenda, Shettima urged conglomerates to serve as pipelines for the administration’s practical economic vision, departing from cosmetic reforms of the past.

“Collaboration between the public and private sectors is the ingredients of a thriving economy. We must engage in open dialogue and share insights and work together to crop solutions that are peculiar to our realities. Whether it is tackling unemployment, reducing poverty, or enhancing education and healthcare, our partnership must aspire to drive sustainable development and create a safe future for all Nigerians,” he added.
