The group said, Tinubu’s blueprint on economy would not only improve the economy of the nation but, also will boost the living standard of the citizens. The leader of the group, Isa Ahmed asserted this during a press conference in Kaduna on Thursday.
“Just like Tinubu had said, our major economic challenges are underinvestment and effective management, and these are what he should be looking at, if emerged as the president of the nation come 2023,” the group said.
Ahmed said that such is achievable, in view of building indivisible values of patriotism, equity, justice and brotherhood.
Tinubu had reiterated that under his leadership, the Nigerian government will be business-friendly, adding that he will support private businesses in the country and attract foreign direct investment to create jobs.
