The Minister of Interior, Dr. Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, announced today on behalf of the Federal Government that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is fully dedicated to addressing the multifaceted challenges currently affecting Nigeria. The announcement came via a statement released by the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Oluwatoyin Akinlade.
In his statement, Minister Tunji-Ojo acknowledged the widespread socio-economic and security challenges faced by countries across the globe, emphasizing that Nigeria is no exception. He stated, “It is today a known fact that difficult socio-economic and security challenges are global, and Nigeria is not isolated. The Government is daily making efforts to confront these varied and numerous challenges with all the might available until respite comes our way.”
Highlighting Nigeria’s unique strengths, the minister proudly declared, “Our warm welcoming spirit and love as well as our unbounded human capital and the richness of our land makes Nigeria unarguably the leading black Nation in the World being Africa’s pride and beacon of hope for the Renewed Hope of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR.”
Minister Tunji-Ojo also took a moment to reflect on Nigeria’s history, recalling how the nation’s founding fathers, despite their differences in faith, tribe, and tongue, came together for Nigeria’s freedom, which citizens enjoy today.
Assuring Nigerians of a brighter future, the minister stated, “The minister assured Nigerians that President Tinubu’s administration through its Renew Hope Agenda would ensure a better Nigeria for all citizens, as a befitting tribute to the past leaders.”
Meanwhile, it was previously announced by the Federal Government that the 63rd Independence anniversary would be celebrated in a low-key manner, with no world leaders invited to Nigeria for the celebration.
