President Muhammadu Buhari has charged both the public and private sector leaders to look inward to solve the unique challenges confronting the nation’s socio-economic development.
Buhari said this when he declared open the 25th Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja today.
Buhari also pledged that his administration will continue to collaborate with the private sector in designing and implementing developmental projects that will keep Nigeria on track for sustained, inclusive and prosperity-driven growth.
In his speech at the opening of the 2-day summit, the president said the successful conclusion of 2019 general elections and the resort by aggrieved candidates to seek redress in the courts rather than the street is proof that Nigeria‘s ‘‘democracy is maturing.’’
Recounting the 2019 general elections, the president said Nigeria has shown the world that it is capable of electing leaders in a peaceful and orderly manner.
He also bemoaned that fact that a significant proportion of Nigeria’s prosperity is concentrated in the hands of a few people.
