Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, on Tuesday said the recession facing Nigeria will not limit the country.
He said Nigeria will go beyond the current economic crisis.
The governor spoke with State House correspondents after meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said: “Everything we do I keep reassuring Nigerians. We want to be together in Nigeria, so whatever we discussed it is in the interest of our citizens. We must make sure we put our heads together to solve our challenges as a developing nation.
“Let me assure Nigerians that there is no developing country that doesn’t go through what we go through and how do we make effort to face the challenges. That’s why you see us putting heads together, trying to appraise and try to find a solution that will be enduring.
“We are not limited to what we see all over the world, we are not limited by the recession and based on what people see, we go beyond that. Go beyond biases, ethnicity, religion and gender just rise to togetherness. That’s the message.”
On his visit to the Villa, he added: “I think we will always come here because we were mandated by the governors’ forum to come and discuss some certain issues with the vice president and that’s why you saw two of us here. We were supposed to be three but the third governor could not make it.”
