Published on

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has declared his administration’s commitment to transforming Nigeria’s agricultural sector, aiming for self-sufficiency in food production and establishing the country as a net exporter of agricultural products. This announcement came during a meeting with a delegation from the Global Tijaniyya Movement, led by Khalifa Muhammad Mahe Niass, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The President highlighted several initiatives to boost agricultural productivity, including expanding farmlands, providing farmers with low-interest loans, and making significant investments in irrigation infrastructure. These efforts are part of a broader strategy to support not only the agriculture sector but also to enhance healthcare and social welfare for all Nigerians.

“We are dedicated to equipping hospitals with modern equipment, providing healthcare professionals with training, and ensuring social welfare for every citizen, including comprehensive health insurance coverage,” President Tinubu stated. He stressed the importance of productivity and self-reliance, reflecting on the principles he grew up with.

Sheikh Mahe Niass, representing the Global Tijaniyya Movement, praised President Tinubu’s dedication to Nigeria’s peace, progress, and stability. He conveyed the Movement’s support and prayers for the President’s success in leading the nation.

The delegation’s visit also included prayers for Nigeria’s continued progress, unity, and prosperity, and for divine wisdom and strength for President Tinubu to achieve his administration’s goals.

This meeting underscores the Tinubu administration’s focus on leveraging Nigeria’s agricultural potential to combat food insecurity and stimulate economic growth. It also reflects the administration’s holistic approach to governance, balancing economic development with spiritual and social welfare.
