Vice-President Kashim Shettima has assured foreign investors of the economic poise of Nigeria following the removal of fuel subsidies and ongoing significant fiscal reforms.
Shettima, representing President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at UN World Food Systems Financing Model meeting in Rome, said that the country is now keen on partnership rather than being given handouts.
He reiterated President Tinubu’s commitment to waking the country from its slumber to have it move the world.
He said, “Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “China is a Sleeping Giant. Let her sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world.” President Bola Tinubu is poised to redefine the meaning and concept of modern leadership in Nigeria, the Giant of Africa, which had woken up from its slumber and is now poised to move the world.
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it,” so said Archimedes, “and I shall move the world.” Nigeria needs no handouts but real partnerships. We have removed the albatrosses of fuel subsidies and multiple exchange rates from our necks; hence, we are seeking investments for mutually beneficial partnerships, not handouts.”
