It is very possible with the massive latent opportunities. And I want to put that in our minds as we close the 2020 chapter. Yes, Nigeria can grow to become a $3 trillion economy by 2035, from the sub-$500 billion of today. There are core critical pillars we need to pursue as a nation with dogged determination and fierce urgency of now.
The 3T2035 Plan can start in the new year. And if the National Identity Number (NIN) adoption works and we have a fair credit system by 2024, expect a massive growth in the national GDP. Then, add the largely informal assets which are out of the national balance sheets, you will see that wealth could be rural.
Nigerians can make it happen and change the course of this nation.
As your President, I will institutionalize great moments across homes and communities, uniting all of us to a shared vision of a great nation that is open, dynamic, prosperous and hopeful. From the lagoons of Lagos to the mangrove of Calabar, from the savanna of Yola through the plateau of Jos, to the beautiful forests of Abakiliki, men and women, boys and girls and indeed all citizens will experience unbounded optimistic future because we will serve.
I will usher a new dawn on nationalism to enable us achieve great success through societal energy. It will be based on substance, and fueled by visible economic roadmaps for all. The nationalism will bring our diasporas to return with money, investment ideas, global standards, networks and passion to build our nation. They will help develop a national pride and confidence, with skill and effectiveness, to harness our national power for national purpose, by using our cottage of intellectuals, artisans, professionals and patriots.
