Aregbesola, in the statement, noted that though the country is going through challenges, Nigeria is defined by the greatness of the Nigerian people in their diversity, strength, ingenuity and resilience.

He said: “The world is going through dire economic and security challenges, which have also affected our nation. However, I am assuring us all that the government will not abandon the people, but will continue to confront all these challenges with all the might at our disposal until respite comes our way.”

In a communique signed by Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr. Shuaib Belgore, Aregbesola said: “Our warmth, welcoming spirit and love, as well as our unbounded human capital and the richness of our land, make Nigeria unarguably the leading black nation in the world and Africa’s pride and beacon of hope. If we can rally ourselves together to harness our potential, we shall be the greatest nation on the earth.”

He, therefore, assured Nigerians of the government’s commitment to tackle all the challenges facing the nation.
