Governor Soludo made this assertion during the 9th (7th Quadrennial) Delegates Conference of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), Anambra State chapter, on Tuesday. He urged Nigerians to adopt a lifestyle that aligns with the nation’s economic capabilities.
He called upon Nigerian leaders to set an example by acknowledging and adapting to Nigeria’s financial constraints. He highlighted the impact of President Bola Tinubu’s administration’s removal of fuel subsidies, emphasizing that this decision affected all citizens, not just civil servants.
Governor Soludo lauded President Tinubu’s move to eliminate fuel subsidies, recognizing its potential to transform the nation’s economy.
“It’s high time we faced the reality that Nigeria’s financial resources are limited and began adjusting our lifestyles accordingly.
“Starting from our leaders, it’s essential to demonstrate through actions that Nigeria operates with limited financial means.

He also pledged to enhance the education sector by recruiting more teachers and maintaining accessible, high-quality education for the state’s residents.
