Senator Shehu Sani emphasized the importance of focusing on industry, agriculture, and security as crucial areas for the new administration to revive the economy.
He made these remarks during his keynote speech at the third edition of the Double Diamond Empowerment Initiative in Lagos.
The event aimed to tackle leadership challenges in Africa and recognize individuals who have made significant contributions and positive impacts in their respective fields.
Speaking at the event whose theme was “Holistic approach towards the nation’s rebirth,” the senator said: “The new administration in place must take bold and courageous decisions that should be in the interest of our country. And there are five issues that he should be serious about, by serious, I mean he should prioritise.
“The first is about our national unity. There is an urgent need to ensure that this country is reinforced, is restrengthen, because the spirit of our people is very low at this very time.
“Secondly, this government must take seriously the issue of national security. The next is the economy of this country. In the last eight years, we have had a government with no economic vision, no economic direction, and no interest in addressing the fundamental economic problems of this country. Now, decisions have to be taken, and there should be a timeline.”
