President Buhari who declared open the 25th Nigerian Economic Summit, in Abuja this morning said many mistake prosperity for wealth.
“Today, many mistake prosperity for wealth. They are not necessarily the same. Experts and analysts explain economic trends by making references to indicators of wealth. Wealth, however, in its simplistic form, is money or other assets.”
He further stated that divided state of severe inequalities arise in a society where its citizens and leaders are motivated by wealth alone.
“In recent years, global events have shown that when a society and its leaders are driven and motivated by these alone, the ultimate outcome is a divided state of severe inequalities.But a prosperous society is one where majority of its citizens have an acceptable standard of living and a decent quality of life.”
