President Bola Tinubu, on Friday, pledged his administration’s commitment to leveraging the nation’s massive gas resources to achieve the fundamental restructuring of the nation’s economy for expansive growth during his tenure.

President Tinubu gave the pledge during a meeting with the Board and Management of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, saying the leveraging would be for domestic utilization, processing, and international export.

According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, the President affirmed that all encumbrances to the entrepreneurial progress and development of Nigeria’s industrious citizens, as well as any further impediments to business practice in the Oil & Gas sector, specifically, will be swiftly removed to create more opportunities for Nigerian companies and international partners to thrive on the natural and human resource wealth which God had bestowed upon the nation.

“It is now a collaborative effort in thinking and doing. We will work with all partners to redefine the future of our economy,” the President told the NLNG delegation, which was led by NLNG Board Chairman, His Royal Majesty, King Edmund Daukuru of Nembe Kingdom and the NLNG Managing Director, Dr. Philip Mshelbila.

President Tinubu affirmed the position of natural gas as Nigeria’s gateway to sustainable development and prosperity, pledging to build a partnership with investors that will guarantee job opportunities and skill development for Nigerian youths in the overriding best interest of the oil and gas producing environments.

“It is all about growing the pie so that Nigerians will benefit,” the President said, adding that “skill development will help the many restive youths who need to be carried along and employed. Their lives need to be more predictable and prosperous.”
