Tinubu To Nigerians – Bear This Hard Times for Now :READ
President Tinubu assured that the hardships of the moment would eventually give way to a more prosperous, equitable and inclusive economy.
Speaking when he received a delegation of youths leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the 36 states of the federation led by Mr Dayo Israel, on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the President said, “You have endured; you just need to persevere a little bit more. It’s not going to be easy to make the necessary changes.’
Tinubu further told the delegation, “I plead your understanding that the economic reforms are very slow sometimes.
“I can assure you that I understand your pains and the pains of your uncles, brothers and your moms. I feel it.
“It is not easy to get out a monster of over 40 years that is called subsidy.”
He said the economic reforms of the past 50+ days were necessary because the country could no longer afford subsidy, which he said benefits only a few elites at the expense of the majority of Nigerians.
“For a few elites fleecing Nigeria, it is unacceptable and will never be acceptable to us.
“Things that we cannot afford. We cannot engage in. We cannot afford the subsidy; it is clear.
