Current hardship temporary, Remi Tinubu assures Nigerians

Nigeria’s First Lady Oluremi Tinubu has assured that the hard times Nigerians face will soon end with the right policies of President Bola Tinubu.

The president’s wife gave the assurance on Monday in the State House during a meeting with the governors’ wives on her pet project, Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI).

Mrs Tinubu assured that 2024 is loaded with “peace, progress, prosperity and greater achievements’’ to the advantage of all Nigerians.

Mrs Tinubu commended the governors’ wives for their efforts and support in 2023, urging them not to relent in addressing the needs of the vulnerable in their states.

“Times like this call for sober reflection; hence, all hands must be on deck,” said Mrs Tinubu. “Moreover, the hardship situation is temporary; it will soon fade away.”

“The mission of the RHI is driven by my office to complement the Renewed Hope Agenda of the administration of President Tinubu,’’ she added.

She said the Women Agricultural Support Programme (WASP), under RHI, will empower 20 farmers each from five states in the South-East Zone.

“These farmers will get N500,000 each, and a total draft of N10 million will be given to five RHI states’ coordinators, as the case may be.

“The National Agricultural Land Development Authority, in partnership with the RHI, will support an additional 80 female farmers from each state with the provision of training and capacity building and agricultural inputs.

“We will buy off all produce from the farms after harvest,’’ she said.

Mrs Tinubu said she would soon launch the “Young Farmers Club’’ in public schools nationwide to encourage farming among the young population.

She said schools with the best farms would be identified, and prizes would be given to them, ranging from school renovations, equipping of school science laboratories, provision of ICT equipment, and upgrading of school libraries.

On the programme “Every Home a Garden’’ competition, the first lady said the overall best garden owner would win N20 million by December.

She urged the governors’ wives to update her on the progress made on the programme.
