Vice President Kashim Shettima revealed in an interview with Channels Television that President Bola Tinubu instructed him to promote the “Nigerian dream” at the ongoing World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

Shettima made this statement while attending the annual WEF, where world leaders gather to discuss the future of the global economy.

The vice president emphasized that his purpose at the forum was to highlight Nigeria’s potential.

He stressed the importance of Nigeria’s presence in Davos, as it is the most populous nation in Africa and has the largest economy.

He emphasized how important it is since the continent determines the course of global prosperity.

According to him, “With Tinubu at the helm of affairs, we have never had it good in terms of governance. He mandated me to go and sell the Nigerian dream, and I am here to showcase Nigeria to you all.

“You know Nigeria represents Africa, the most populous nation in Africa; it has its largest economy. The trajectory of global growth is facing Africa and Nigeria will make or mar that transition. So, we have to be in Davos to sell the Nigerian brand because wherever Nigeria goes, that is where Africa goes.”

Shettima emphasized the importance of the Nigerian populace to the country’s economic progress, adding, “I appreciate, I applaud, I celebrate the success stories of Botswana, Mauritius and even of Rwanda but when you look at the size, what is the population of Botswana? 2.6 million people. What is the population of Mauritius? 1.3 million, even Rwanda has a population of 14.9 million people; all are not bigger than metropolitan Kano. So, the population of Nigeria is essential.”
