“Let us coalesce to take the nation to a greater pedestal.

“This gathering cuts across ethnic, religious, and political lines.


“Here, we have Pastor Eno of Akwa Ibom and Father Hyacinth of Benue. As the President was seated, he was asking, ‘Where is Wammako, where is Yari’?

“That is the hallmark of true leadership. What binds us together supersedes whatever it is that may divide us.

“The future of the black man rests on Nigeria to make or mar.

“Our economy has turned the corner. By the coming months, the economy will roar back to glory,” Shettima told the gathering.

Since President Bola Tinubu announced the removal of petrol subsidy in May of 2023, inflation peaked.

Now, the salary of many Nigerians no longer caters to their basic needs.
