President Bola Tinubu received the endorsement of Sultan Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III for his decisive actions in leading the nation.

He emphasized the importance of making difficult decisions now, even in the face of hardship, for the future benefit of Nigerians. The Sultanate pledged its unwavering support to the Federal Government and its commitment to maintaining peace and stability in the country.

During the visit, VP Shettima sought the support of Northwest leaders for the Tinubu administration in addressing regional challenges. He highlighted President Tinubu's awareness of the insecurity in the region and the administration's efforts to address the situation. He called for unity among political leaders to confront common issues such as insecurity, poverty, and underdevelopment. The Vice President emphasized the significance of peace and unity, acknowledging the role of the traditional institution in the nation's progress. He advised Sokoto State Governor Ahmed Aliyu Sokoto to provide purposeful leadership and maintain good relations with leaders across the state.

Governor Aliyu Sokoto expressed gratitude for the Vice President's visit, considering it a demonstration of deep love for Sokoto State and its people. He commended VP Shettima for his patience, tolerance, and courage, assuring him of the state's support for the success of the Tinubu administration.

In addition, prominent groups and leaders in the Niger Delta region showed their support for President Tinubu's decision to end fuel subsidy. They urged the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress to reconsider their opposition to the subsidy withdrawal, arguing that it perpetuates fraud and harms the masses. The Ijaw National Congress called on the government to expedite the repair of refineries to mitigate the effects of the removal. The Pan Niger Delta Forum described subsidy as a drain on the country's resources and called for its removal. They emphasized the need for the government to implement effective measures to alleviate the impact on the citizens.

The Future Nigeria Movement praised President Tinubu for fulfilling his promise to remove the subsidy. They recommended that the government declare a state of emergency in the energy sector, revive state-owned refineries, and establish modular refineries. The Southern Nigeria Youth Congress supported the subsidy removal and called for the establishment of modular refineries and alternative energy sources. Itsekiri Leaders of Thought commended President Tinubu for his decisive action, considering recent revelations of subsidy fraud. They urged labor unions to give the new administration time to address the challenges resulting from the subsidy removal.

Former presidential aide Senator Ita Enang welcomed the removal of fuel subsidy, highlighting its positive impact on loan repayment and infrastructure development. He anticipated increased domestic refining through the Dangote Refinery and other modular refineries, leading to competition and lower fuel prices. Chief Edet Nkpubre, a former South-South National Vice Chairman of the PDP, believed that the subsidy removal would eradicate corruption.
