Tinubu assured that his administration would support plans and efforts to give ease and succour to Hajj pilgrims.

He emphasized the importance of spiritual endeavours in nation-building, underscoring his administration’s commitment to supporting religious activities.

He highlighted the need for collaboration between political and spiritual leaders to advance the nation’s interests and promote unity among the people.

On agriculture, the President outlined plans to bolster agricultural productivity through various initiatives, including the expansion of farmlands, provision of low-interest loans to farmers and investments in irrigation infrastructure.

“We are dedicated to equipping hospitals with modern equipment, providing healthcare professionals with training, and ensuring social welfare for every citizen, including comprehensive health insurance coverage.

“Nigeria will become a net-exporter of food. We are bringing thousands of tractors. Food production will be greatly expanded through aggressive mechanisation. We must be productive as a people. That is the Sunnah and the principles I grew up understanding,” he said.

Tinubu commended the Global Tijaniyya Movement for their support and prayers, emphasising the importance of collective efforts in building a better Nigeria.

Niass, the Khalifa of Tijaniyya, speaking on behalf of the delegation, commended the President for his unwavering commitment to Nigeria’s peace, progress, and stability.

He expressed confidence in the President’s leadership and conveyed the fervent support and prayers of members of the Global Tijaniyya Movement to the Nigerian leader.

During their visit, the delegation offered prayers for the nation’s progress, unity and prosperity, and for Almighty Allah to grant Tinubu wisdom, strength and success.
