Tinubu also said his administration would work with the National Assembly to facilitate a bill to empower his government to create more jobs.

“Our government also shall work with the National Assembly to fashion an omnibus Jobs and Prosperity bill. This bill will give our administration the policy space to embark on labour-intensive infrastructural improvements, encourage light industry and provide improved social services for the poor, elderly and vulnerable,” the president said.

Speaking on his plan for security, the president said reforming Nigeria’s security architecture remains his top priority. To address this issue, he said he would improve the security doctrine and architecture, invest more in security personnel, and provide better training, equipment, pay, and firepower.

Tinubu stated in also in his inaugural speech that fuel subsidy has been permanently removed. He said the decision to remove it became imperative because the subsidy regime increasingly favored the rich more than the poor and the costs of the subsidy are too high.

“The funds will be used for better investment in public infrastructure, education, healthcare, and job creation,” he said.

Meanwhile, shortly after his inauguration, the President met with envoys from the United Kingdom, United States, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, Israel, Cape Verde, Somalia and Nicaragua at the Presidential Villa, Abuja
