The Director of the Centre for Democracy and Development Idayat Hassan has urged Nigeria’s new President to confront Nigeria’s Pressing Challenges with Strategic Planning, Sound Financial Management and expert Advice.
She said this in a press statement just hours before Mr. Tinubu was sworn in as Nigeria’s sixteenth President.
She said in the face of chronic insecurity, extreme poverty and an economy which is bleeding in every respect, ”it is our hope that the new administration would approach the urgent governance tasks before it with strategic planning, sound financial management, and the support of expert advisers”.
According to her, CDD also acknowledges that the outcome of the election, which produced the new helmsman, is currently being adjudicated in court. She added that It is therefore crucial for the judiciary to provide a fair and impartial ruling that upholds the integrity of our democratic process.
She urged all parties involved to respect the legal proceedings and allow the rule of law to take its course.
Miss Hassan also said it is important for all citizens to put aside their differences and focus on the collective goal of advancing our nation’s well-being.
