He dismissed criticisms of Tinubu’s economic policies, emphasizing the need for tailored solutions to Nigeria’s unique economic context.

While lamenting sabotage from individuals prioritizing personal gain over national interest, Shettima expressed optimism about the effectiveness of ongoing measures in tackling economic challenges.

In his remarks, Shettima highlighted the significance of Nigeria’s success in driving Africa’s projected growth revolution, stressing the importance of unity and collective effort towards national development.

Dr. Shamsudeen Usman, Chairman of the Ministry of Finance Incorporated, emphasized the importance of policy consistency and integration into the country’s long-term development framework. He called for periodic review and alignment with transformative goals.
