President Bola Ahmed Tinubu says his administration is deploying resources to critical sectors and areas that would impact on the welfare of Nigerians, saying he will use good governance to tackle beneficiaries of the old subsidy regime that will fight back.

Speaking at a meeting with Forum of the state chairmen of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja on Friday, he assured Nigerians that his administration was working round the clock to improve their living conditions, and asked leaders at the grassroots level to encourage citizens to get their National Identification Number (NIN) for planning and government interventions.

Tinubu emphasised that repositioning of the economy was a national priority, and urged party members not to wait for appointment before bringing governance and exemplary civic engagement to Nigerians.

He said “As we fight corruption, smugglers and old subsidy beneficiaries, they must certainly fight back. All who falsified records and become losers with the subsidy on petroleum products removal will fight back.

“But we will defend our people. The treasury belongs to the people, and that sacred trust must not be abused.

“I urge the state chairmen that regardless of party affiliations, let us help citizens by mobilising them for NIN, we cannot embarked on social security interventions for vulnerability. We will be making faulty moves without accurate data and iron-clad, digital intervention structures.

“I have established a committee of governors, and it is headed by the Vice President Kashim Shettima. It is working on what must be done to further lift our people.

“We need to give hope, and we are giving it to the country and our citizens. We are working hard day and night, although some agents of destabilisation are present in the polity. Nigerians, with our focused support, shall defeat them”.
