Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda Marks New Beginning - Wike

Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has advised Nigerians to explore the path of dialogue in resolving the country’s numerous challenges.

Mr Wike said this at a public lecture/special Jummu’a prayer held in Abuja as part of activities to commemorate Nigeria’s 63rd Independence.

The Minister, represented by Danlami Ihayyo, the Mandate Secretary of the Education Secretariat in the FCT, said that Nigeria had been faced with many challenges since independence, but that President Bola Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda marked a new beginning for the country.

He said that the 63rd anniversary would serve as a new beginning for the country, in line with Mr Tinubu’s agenda.

Mr Wike, who was the guest speaker, underscored the need to key into the agenda to address the nation’s socio-economic challenges.

While describing the topic as appropriate, the minister said, “It underscores the importance of addressing the socio-economic challenges our nation faces.

“And, hopefully, it would present a new perspective and a renewed hope agenda for President Bola Tinubu.

“Nigeria is still waxing strong in terms of successes recorded across all sectors of the economy, in spite of numerous plights.”

He, however, advised Nigerians to acknowledge the persistent challenges ranging from poverty, unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, and insecurity as tools to revitalise the country and to impact Nigerians positively.

He promised to collaborate with other stakeholders to ensure harmony among citizens and to work hard to actualise the Founding Father’s vision for the country.

“Here in the FCT, we will continue to work hard at promoting national unity, cohesion, and tolerance in line with the vision of our founding fathers.”

He also expressed gratitude to the National Council of Islamic Affairs for the choice of the theme for discussion, saying the council and Islam as a whole had played vital roles in ensuring Nigeria’s unity.

“Islamic principles have always played a significant role in our society, not only through righteousness but also towards compassion and justice, the value of social justice, and charity.

“These are models to address our current socio-economic challenges.

“These values remind us of the importance of caring for the less fortunate and working towards a more enviable society,” Mr Wike said.
