Release Money To Boost Economy, Tinubu Tells Buhari

The national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has said the executive and legislature must work together and release money to address poverty and unemployment in Nigeria.

Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos State, also urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Assembly to immediately put a stop to austerity measures and introduce stimulus expenditure to fast track the economy.

He stated this in Kano on Monday at the 12th colloquium to mark his 69th birthday, where he also said Nigerian leaders must fine-tune their economic programmes to favour the poor.

The Asiwaju of Lagos equally advised the federal government to employ 50 million youths in the security sector to address various breaches afflicting the country.

The colloquium was themed ‘Our Common Bond, Our Common Wealth: The Imperative of National Cohesion for Growth and Prosperity’.

President Buhari, who participated in the event virtually, said Nigeria will be stronger if it remained one.

Other people who attended the colloquium virtually included Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
