Shettima asked the council’s members to be fully committed to fostering a favourable business environment in the nation during his remarks at the council’s first meeting, which was held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Additionally, he pleaded with the council members to easily identify themselves with President Bola Tinubu’s administration’s eight-point Renewed Hope Agenda.
He said that this would demonstrate the powerful political determination underlying the revolutionary plans of the Tinubu-led administration.
Shettima said, “‘Aligning seamlessly with the vision of His Excellency, President Bola Tinubu and the 8-point Renewed Hope agenda of this administration.
“Our commitment to fostering a conducive business environment is a direct reflection of the strong political will driving the transformative initiatives of this government.
“Today, we stand on a robust foundation, and we recognize that achieving PEBEC’s mandate directly contributes to the success of our shared economic prosperity as a nation.
“Undoubtedly, reforms are formidable undertakings, particularly in our region. However, history has proven that they are achievable, and we draw inspiration from past successes.
“As a council, our dedication to these reforms must be unwavering, and each member must take ownership of this mission with 100 percent commitment.”
In a similar vein, Shettima asked the council members to work hard for the Tinubu administration’s overall success.
The speaker further stated that in order to truly realize the revolutionary effects that PEBEC may have on the economic environment in Nigeria, cooperation and a common commitment were the necessary mindsets.
The vice president said,” Today, as we confront these difficulties head-on, our goal is not merely to weather the storm but to create more winners, enterprises that not only withstand challenges but thrive and contribute substantially to our economic vitality.”
