The about our party cannot be hidden...We are making phenomenal progress

Tinubu Committed to Fostering Entrepreneurship, Innovation, says Shettima

President Bola Tinubu is committed to creating an environment that fosters entrepreneurship and innovation, Vice President Kashim Shettima said on Thursday.


Vice President Shettima stated this while commissioning some projects, including the Ijele 93.1 FM, phase two of the SEOF Touch-A-Life Housing Project, and the AEMSL Meter Factory in Anambra State.


A statement yesterday in Abuja by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity in the Office of the Vice President, Stanley Nkwocha, Shettima also said the private sector forms an integral half of the crucial foundation that holds the Nigerian government.


He said, “This gathering is a reminder that the private sector forms the other half of the government’s crucial foundation. Whatever innovation we design, whatever ideas we explore, whatever interests we pursue, we cannot achieve our objectives if those for whom they are targeted are not carried along or in tune with our agenda.


“I am utterly proud to be here today, honoured and excited to witness the commissioning of these landmark projects. I am convinced that each of us understands the urgency of our collective actions”.


Shettima hailed Anambra State for its private sector-driven development.


The Vice President pledged the Federal Government’s support to address the state’s ecological challenges.


He noted that Anambra State had become a critical pillar of Nigeria’s economic future.


Shettima also praised Governor Charles Soludo for his understanding of the importance of a thriving private sector.


The Vice President said Soludo had demonstrated a “vast understanding of our economic dynamics, not just refined in academic chambers but forged in the crucible of real-world challenges.”


He also praised the Chairman of Chrome Group and Founder of Sir Emeka Offor Foundation (SEOF), Dr. Emeka Offor, for his contributions to the development of Anambra State.


Acknowledging Offor’s “innovation, determination, and audacious vision,” Shettima said the businessman’s investments in Anambra State had helped to create jobs, improve infrastructure, and provide essential services to the people of the state.


“Dr. Emeka Offor is a shining example of what can be achieved when the private sector and the government work together. He is a true patriot who is committed to making Nigeria a better place,” he said.


Shedding more light on the crucial role the private sector plays in nation-building, the Vice President said the hope the Tinubu administration had promised to renew could only be realised in an environment where the ideas of pace-setting individuals like Emeka Offor are translated into action.


Shettima added: “The profound partnership between the Federal Government and each state remains an indispensable cornerstone.


“I assure you that commitment knows no bounds when fostering an environment ripe for entrepreneurial growth and innovation. For it is in the nurturing embrace of this collaborative effort that the delicate balance between the public and private sectors resonates, defining the trajectory of successful nations.”
