Abuja, Sept. 15, 2023 – President Bola Tinubu says he will not be a president that gives excuses. He said he would work hard with purpose and determination to create wealth for all Nigerians.

President Tinubu said on Thursday while receiving a 62-man delegation from  Rivers State.

Ajuri Ngelale, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, said in a statement that Tinubu told the delegation that he would work hard for the country without looking back.

He promised that his administration would run aggressively to change the narrative of backwardness.

Tinubu said the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, left big shoes to fill for the new Rivers Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, and one of his most trusted allies.

He promised that Rivers State would always have direct access to him in their joint march toward sustainable development.

“We are not meant to be in a position to be poor. We will turn the tide! Somewhere, somehow in this storm, there’s a quiet and peaceful place for us.

“We will locate it! We are not lazy people. We are richly endowed. We just need to be our brother’s keeper, and good neighbours to one another.

“I am not a President that will give excuses. I will work hard for our nation with purpose, determination and dedication to create wealth for all Nigerians. We have no reason to be poor! We will not look back, we will run aggressively forward.

“Today, we may be swimming against the tide, but the waves will soon propel us forward from behind. We will achieve the goals and dreams of our forefathers.

“I am inspired by the nation of people I now lead,” he said.
