Economy: Don’t give up on Tinubu govt – APC chieftain, Oyintiloye appeals to Nigerians

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Osun State, Hon. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye has appealed to Nigerians not to give up on the administration of President Bola Tunubu.

Oyintiloye made the appeal while speaking with journalists on Sunday in Osogbo.

While assuring that Tinubu being a true democrat would fulfil all his electoral promises for the prosperity of Nigerians, Oyintiloye added that various economic policies by the president, such as fuel subsidy removal, unification of naira, among others, which may have created a bit of discomfort, would form a strong foundation upon which a prosperous Nigeria would be built.

The former lawmaker said although it was obvious that Nigerians were presently experiencing economic hardship, there was hope for a better and prosperous future.

“There is no doubt that Nigerians are facing hard times, but this is not deliberate, nor a sign of failure on the part of the president.

“For us to enjoy a prosperous Nigeria, we must be ready to sacrifice a little and that is what is currently happening.

“Mr President meant well for Nigerians. He will not gain anything deliberately by inflicting pain on Nigerians.

“All the economic policies put in place by the president that are causing the pains are actually meant to strengthen our economy.

“Don’t give up on the president. He will do better and he will continue to improve on the welfare of Nigerians,” he said.

Hinting that the Tinubu administration inherited a bad economy when he came to power, he said to fix it for the benefit of Nigerians would require patience.

He said the various interventions the president have been putting in place were necessary towards revitalising the country’s economy.

He said the revitalisation would be achieved through priority areas such as quality agricultural practices, a robust marketing system, quality health system, education, improved electricity, and tackling of corruption.

“Government will continue to strengthen our economy by investing in industries and promoting local production, developing the agricultural value chain, which will help reduce our dependence on imports and crude oil,” he said.

Oyintiloye, however, appealed to leaders of the opposition party to guard against utterances and narratives capable of polarising the country.
