The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has called on State Governors to support President Bola Tinubu.
Idris has called on state governors to support the 8-point agenda of Tinubu.
According to him, the agenda is meant to position Nigeria in a position of respect within the comity of nations.
The minister said this during a courtesy visit by the Executive Governor of Niger State, Mohammed Umar Bago, on Tuesday.
Idris said the President had given marching orders to the new Ministers to propagate and conscientize Nigerians on the agenda.
He said that the president was aware that Nigerians are experiencing hardship due to recent policies and also due to the economic downturn.
The president, he said, has also promised that the suffering would give way to a new lease on life in the long run.
To cushion the effect of the hardship, the minister said that, among other things, the federal government has shared palliatives in the form of assorted grains to complement the special financial intervention that has been distributed to the states.
He said the states have shown commitment and support in distributing the palliative materials, and he hopes that the support will continue.
