Shettima cautions citizens to stop cursing Nigeria 


Vice President Kashim Shettima has issued a warning to Nigerians, advising them against cursing the country due to the hardships they are facing.

He emphasized that those who abuse the system will not be able to reap its benefits. Additionally, he cautioned against portraying the country as a failure, highlighting the positive performance of sectors such as health, petroleum, agriculture, and real estate.

During the 2024 Nigerian Risk Leadership Summit and Awards held in Abuja yesterday, Vice President Kashim Shettima, represented by Tope Fasua, the Special Adviser to the President on Economic Affairs in the Office of the Vice President, emphasized the abundance of opportunities in Nigeria.

He urged everyone to appreciate the country’s blessings and refrain from criticizing or belittling it.

“It cannot be tales of woes all the time. As bad as things are today and with all the inflation, there are sectors that are doing incredibly well. The health sector is doing very well. The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

“However, you have to position yourself in the reform. If you go out and say Nigeria is a shitty country, forgive my French, you are going to get shitty results. Someone said that you are not going to benefit from the country that you curse.

The Vice President stated that the government aims to help local companies succeed globally and encourage more innovative business practices to boost the economy.

He stated, “Whereas we are working towards taking many of our companies global and opening up the economy to more innovations in the business space, we celebrate our MSMEs and urge them to do a lot more.

“Innovation is the key to modern wealth and prosperity and is fused with sustainability. Innovation is about adding value to what we already have and making the lives of human beings easier.”
