When Naira went haywire and some people were celebrating, inwardly we were laughing at them - Shettima assures Nigerians

Vice-President Kashim Shettima has assured Nigerians that the Naira will continue to appreciate against the Dollar in the foreign exchange market. 

 

Speaking when a delegation of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) led by its President, Gabriel Idahosa, paid him a courtesy visit in his office at the President Villa, Abuja, Shettima stated that when the Naira went haywire and some people were celebrating, they were inwardly laughing at them because they know they have the leadership to reverse the trend. 

 

He also stated that President Bola Tinubu had to end the fuel subsidy and ensure the unification of the multiple exchange rate because “the former arrangement was producing billionaires overnight.”

 

He said; 

 

“Naira went haywire and some people were celebrating but inwardly we were laughing at them because we knew that we had the leadership to reverse the trend. Asiwaju knows the game, and truly the naira is gaining and the difference will drop further.

“We will always thank President Tinubu for providing the blueprint for the development of Lagos that we are seeing today.  We are determined to ensure that we generate jobs for our youths. Honestly, the President’s obsession is to live in a place of glory, to transform this country to a higher pedestal. He wants to leave a legacy, one of qualitative leadership because the hope of the black man, the hope of Africa rests with Nigeria.

“I want to assure you that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is one of you. He understands your ecosystem. In this government, you have an ally and a friend.”
