Sen. Oluremi Tinubu,the First Lady, has assured Nigerians that the policies of the federal government will in the long run alleviate the current sufferings of Nigerians.

The president’s wife made this known at the State House, Abuja, on Monday at a meeting with the 36 states’ governors’ wives to evaluate the gains of her pet project, the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI).

Mrs. Tinubu commended the governors’ wives for their efforts and support in 2023, urging them not to relent in addressing the needs of the vulnerable in their states.

“Times like this call for sober reflection; hence, all hands must be on deck. Moreover, the hardship situation is temporary; it will soon fade away.

“The mission of the RHI is driven by my office to complement the Renewed Hope Agenda of the administration of President Tinubu,’’ she said.

She disclosed that the Women Agricultural Support Programme (WASP) and the RHI initiative will reward 20 farmers with N500,000 each from five states in the South East Zone.

The wife of the president said farmers will get N500,000 each, and a total draft of N10 million will be given to five RHI states’ coordinators, as the case may be.

“The National Agricultural Land Development Authority, in partnership with the RHI, will support an additional 80 female farmers from each state with the provision of training, capacity building, and agricultural inputs.

“We will buy off all produce from the farms after harvest.”
