President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has assured that he will always be fair to all Nigerians, stating his administration remains committed to advancing the unity of Nigeria and ensuring the welfare and prosperity of all citizens.

The President, who said this Friday, December 22, 2023, at the Ansar-Ud-Deen Central Mosque in Surulere, Lagos, stressed the economic reforms initiated by his government are aimed at establishing a robust and secure foundation both for Nigerians today and generations unborn.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, also stated that Tinubu, who joined the Muslim Ummah to observe Jumat prayers marking the Centennial Anniversary of the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society of Nigeria (ADS), commended the Society for its service to humanity, contributions to the propagation of the tenets of Islam, and efforts at uplifting the downtrodden in the country.

The Nigerian leader also implored members of the ADS to remain committed to their objectives of advancing the education of citizens, as well as promoting the moral and social development of the Muslim Ummah.

Tinubu commended the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society for their support during the 2023 Elections in the West African country.

He further emphasised that their efforts have continued to serve as a motivation for his administration to remain resolute in delivering good governance to the people.

President Tinubu said: “I thank the Ansar-Ud-Deen Society for its support during the elections.

“I do not take it for granted; rather, the support serves as a stimulus for us in government to remain focused.”

On recent cushioning socio-economic measures for consumers

While reiterating his commitment to the welfare of all citizens, the President, who is on a brief Christmas holiday in Lagos, touched on the recent 50 percent cut in inter-state land transportation fares nationwide, and the payment of N-Power beneficiaries’ backlog of allowances, among other reliefs.

He affirmed these measures are all efforts aimed at alleviating the burden of Nigerian consumers this festive season with much more to be expected in the new year.

”We are committed to enthroning a better society for our citizens irrespective of ethnic, religious, or geographical differences.

“The various policies already in place are expected to bring great succour to our people.

“We know their pains, and we are addressing them holistically,” Tinubu declared.

The Nigerian President added: “It is instructive that Ansar-Ud-Deen has attained 100 years through a systemic strategy that maintains its mission and vision.

“This is a testimony to what focused planning can achieve in a society.”
