On Friday, President Bola Tinubu disclosed that the goals of his administration’s policies and initiatives are to create a society that is more equitable, superior, and honest.
The President made this comment at a meeting with a group of devout Muslims from the South-West, led by Alhaji Rasaki Oladejo, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
According to Tinubu, the nation must make sacrifices if it is to advance.
In addition, Tinubu said that if the fuel subsidy had been in place, Nigeria would have fallen apart.
He said, “It is about our future. We must guarantee our future. Almighty Allah will not give us a burden that we cannot bear. He has put us here for a purpose. It may look difficult; even rough, but it will get better. We avoided it (removing the petroleum subsidy) for 40 years. We are all going through the pain now, but for Nigeria not to collapse, we had to remove the subsidy.
“In the history of successful nations, there is nothing more vital than the leadership of a nation making difficult decisions at the right time and for the right reasons. There would have been no money for the subnationals.”
The president promised Nigerians that brighter days are coming, claiming that the nation’s current problems are simply transitory.
Tinubu added, “We have to believe in one country; we have to believe in Nigeria. We will do our best, and our economy will get better for the benefit of Nigerians. I am very sure of that, and we are putting in the work to ensure that.”
President Tinubu thanked the leaders for their prayers and support and gave them the assurance that his administration was steadfast in its commitment to equipping the youth with skills and fostering an environment that would enable them to succeed.
Rasaki Oladejo, the President of the Ummah, and Adegboyega Oyetola, the Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, praised President Tinubu for his bravery in ending the petroleum subsidy and instigating important, yet challenging reforms.
He said, “There had been no leader, military, or civilian that could break this hard nut of removing petroleum subsidy for us to grow as a country. You have done it. God will see you through.”
