President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has stated that his administration will give more attention to education and healthcare sectors of the Nigerian economy, as well as provide the enablements for industrialisation, investments in consonance with his vision of creating an economically stable and prosperous country.

ConsumerConnect reports President Tinubu said this Monday, January 15, 2024, while speaking at the second-term inauguration of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, in Owerri, the state capital.

The Nigerian leader declared he is well-attuned to the concerns of the citizenry.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, in a statement issued Monday noted Tinubu equally assured Nigerian consumers that the challenges occasioned by “very essential reforms” are being addressed.

The President stated: “In the past 40 years, a few people were cornering our commonwealth, and calling it subsidy, but I call it wasteful.

“Right now, we are all bearing and sharing that pain. But things are looking up. Things will get better for the good of all Nigerians. With me, there is hope.”

He further said: “I assure you that there will be substantial development in education for your children; priority on industrialisation; healthcare will receive more allocation and attention.

“We will train more health workers.”

Tinubu as well stressed that he is committed to building a united and secure country, noting the peace and security in the state.

“Before now, people were afraid of coming to Imo state, but today Imo is safe and open for business.

“What we have learned from this experience is the importance of unity, cooperation, and a focus on our internal security,” the President said.

He, however, implored Governor Uzodinma to work even harder for the people, emphasising that hard work is the reward for a re-election.

Our renewed pledge to serve Imo people, by Uzodinma

Speaking after the administration of oaths of office by the Imo State Chief Judge, Justice Theresa Chukwuemeka-Chikeka, Governor Uzodinma pledged that his second tenure would be an uncommon tenure in the execution of policies.

The governor said: “We have been able to lay a solid foundation for accelerated economic growth and development of our state.

“We also addressed the decay we met in the civil service, the decay we met in the education sector, and the health sector.”

He also noted that his administration addressed the lingering problem of unemployment through the variety of youth empowerment initiatives.

The governor further explained: “We carried out a digital version of dealing with the unemployment market, which included the provision of digital and other portable skills, including artificial intelligence to our teeming young men and women.”

Unfolding his priorities, Governor as well disclosed the next four years of his administration in imo State would focus on deepening the shared prosperity mantra through massive infrastructural expansion.

He restated that the vision of his government is anchored on a 10-year development plan, which he noted has the capacity to make the state self-sufficient.
