Politics too important to be left to politicians – VP Shettima to Top industrialists

Politics too important to be left to politicians – VP Shettima to Top industrialists


Vice-President Kashim Shettima has called for a collaboration between the government and business leaders, saying politics is too important to be left to the politicians alone.

The Vice President said this collaboration is necessary to propel Nigeria’s economic growth and prosperity.


According to him, open dialogue, shared insights, and collaborative work between the public and private sectors are necessary to develop solutions tailored towards Nigeria’s realities.

Speaking at a gathering of top industrialists at the Heirs Holdings Group Directors’ Annual Summit Dinner in Abuja on Friday, Shettima called for synergy between the political class and economic stakeholders, explaining that the two spheres are not opposites but complementary forces vital for national stability and progress.

“Politics is too important to be left to the politicians, and enterprises that define our economic destination are too important to be left to the businessmen alone to develop,” he said.


Aligning with President Bola Tinubu’s economic agenda, the Vice President urged conglomerates to serve as pipelines for the administration’s practical economic vision, departing from cosmetic reforms of the past.


“Collaboration between the public and private sectors is the ingredients of a thriving economy. We must engage in open dialogue and share insights and work together to crop solutions that are peculiar to our realities. Whether it is tackling unemployment, reducing poverty, or enhancing education and healthcare, our partnership must aspire to drive sustainable development and create a safe future for all Nigerians,” he added.

He hailed the Chairman of Heirs Holdings, Group Tony Elumelu, describing him as an “enigma and a banking colossus whose entrepreneurial exploits have carved a niche in Africa’s economic landscape.”

Earlier, Elumelu reaffirmed the group’s commitment to the philosophy of Africapitalism and empowering young entrepreneurs across the continent.


He said the annual gathering serves as a platform to review achievements, business practices, and learn from the experiences of over 100 board members.
