As President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s led administration economic reforms continue to take tolls on Nigerians, the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, has assured Nigerians that in the coming months the country will reap bountiful harvests.

The Vice President gave the assurance late Tuesday night while speaking at the Iftar, which is the fast-breaking evening meal for Muslims during the month of Ramadan, organised by President Tinubu for members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and services chiefs.

Senator Shettima also urged all appointees of the administration to support the president in his determination to salvage the ship of the nation, adding that the president means well for the nation, even as he reminded them that leadership requires dedication.

He said, “Ramadan is a season of forgiveness; it’s a season of generosity, which incidentally coincides with the lent season, which goes to buttress the fact that what binds us together exceeds whatever divides us.

“This is time for all of us to rally around our leader because leadership requires sacrifice, leadership requires tenacity of purpose, leadership requires commitment.

“Honourable ministers, service chiefs, distinguished ladies and gentlemen, we have crossed the Rubicon, and the nation is on the path to sustained growth. Some nations have gone through some worse phases in the annals of their history than us.

“The President means well for the nation; he has a good heart for the nation, and we have the moral imperative to support him in whatever way we can to salvage the ship of the state.”

The VP said: “He doesn’t subscribe to the idea of apportioning blame; the bulk stops on his desk, and he has not shied away from facing some gargantuan challenges facing us. Be rest assured that, in the fullness of time, posterity will be very kind to him.

“Let’s keep this… in prayers, let’s pray for the restoration of peace and stability in the country. Luckily, the economy is turning the corner, and by the grace of God, in the coming months we shall have a bountiful harvest season and we shall all smile once again.”
