President Bola Tinubu underscored his administration’s unwavering commitment to deploying resources strategically to uplift critical sectors impacting the welfare of Nigerians, even in the face of opposition from smugglers and what he termed as “old subsidy beneficiaries.”

Since taking office on May 29, 2023, President Tinubu has embarked on bold reforms, including discontinuing petroleum subsidies and unifying foreign exchange rates to eliminate long-standing arbitrage practices.

However, he reaffirmed his government’s dedication to defending the treasury for the people’s benefit, stressing the importance of giving hope and progress to the nation.
