Please Don’t Give Up On Tinubu, APC Chieftain Urges Nigerians

 

By -Ajisafe Olayiwola

 

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Osun State, Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, has urged Nigerians to be patient and optimistic about the administration of President Bola Tinubu.

 

The party chieftain described Tinubu as a true democrat who is working earnestly to fulfill all his electoral promises for the prosperity of the citizens.

 

While addressing newsmen in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, on Sunday, Oyinloye admitted that Nigerians are currently grappling with economic hardship.

 

The Federal Government had defended the removal of the fuel subsidy, among many other policies, saying it was necessary to enhance economic growth.

 

Oyintiloye, a former state lawmaker, noted that these various economic policies, including the fuel subsidy removal, unification of the naira, among others, which may have created a bit of discomfort, would form a strong foundation upon which a prosperous Nigeria would be built.

 

He said, “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 inflicting pains on Nigerians.”

 

The APC chieftain added that “all the economic policies put in place by the President that are causing the pains are 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.”

 

The APC chieftain opined that the various interventions the President has been putting in place were necessary towards revitalising the country’s economy which would be achieved through priority being given to key areas such as quality agricultural practices, a robust marketing system, quality health system, education, improved electricity and tackling of corruption.

 

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

 

Oyintiloye, a member of the defunct APC Presidential Campaign Council, appealed to leaders of opposition parties to guard against utterances and narratives capable of polarising the country.

 

He said, “The opposition should be patriotic enough to avoid inflammatory statements that could cause chaos in the country. President Tinubu has good intentions and he is working so hard to turn things around for Nigeria.

 

“The attack on the coastal highway initiative by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is one example of too many utterances capable of creating ill-feelings among Nigerians.

 

“Even as members of party in opposition, they should scrutinise information available to them well and ensure that they are not creating division among Nigerians because unity is what we actually need as a country at the moment.”
