Tinubu made this known at the inauguration of the public wealth management conference organised by the Ministry of Finance Incorporated (MOFI) on Tuesday in Abuja.

 

He said there was a need to identify, consolidate and maximise returns on government-owned assets worth trillions of naira.

 

Represented at the event by Vice President Kashim Shettima, Tinubu also said there are plans to create millions of jobs by unlocking the value of Nigeria’s vast public assets.

 

“The federal government set a goal to raise at least $10 billion in order to increase foreign exchange liquidity, a key ingredient to stabilise the naira and grow the economy,” he said.

 

“At the core of this is ensuring optimal management of the assets and investments of the Federal Government towards unlocking their revenue potential.

 

“This includes our bold and achievable plan to double the GDP growth rate and significantly increase the GDP base over the next 8 years.”

 

 

 

Tinubu, however, revealed that decades of mismanagement and underutilisation have plagued the country’s assets, spread across Nigeria and outside its borders, leading to revenue losses that have hindered economic growth.

 

He assured that

 

 

“the newly restructured Ministry of Finance Incorporated, which is to act as custodian and active manager of these assets, will now take the centre stage.”

The president also said transparency and accountability are key principles, believing improved corporate governance, innovative partnerships and attracting alternative investment capital would significantly increase returns.

 

“These improved returns will then be directed towards crucial funding for education, healthcare, housing, power, roads and other areas vital to lifting millions out of poverty,” Tinubu said.

 

“And stimulating sustainable economic development and job creation for the youths.”

 

By efficiently managing public resources, Tinubu said the government aimed to build a more equitable society and unlock the full potential of its citizens.
